This is the sixty-seventh puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Sammy Thunder. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use Sammy's explanation to figure out how many days in the year he works.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Sammy's work-and-rest schedule repeats itself every five days.

Hint Two
    Sammy's schedule is a cycle that consists of three days on the job, followed by two days of downtime.

Hint Three
    Sammy works 3/5ths of the days in the year. With that fact under your belt, you should be able to find the answer using a simple calculation.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

See if you can't organize Sammy's rambling description into something a little easier to understand.

[edit] When Completed


Sammy's lengthy and convoluted explanation may have been hard to understand, but his work schedule is simple. He works three days in a row, rests for two, and then repeats the pattern. Put a different way, Sammy works three out of every five days. Three-fifths of a 365-day year gives you 219 workdays per year.

That's a pretty sweet deal he's got going on.

[edit] Solution

Sammy works 219 days in the year.

[edit] Progress

3095 Picarats and 166 Hint Coins.
