This is the seventy-fifth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Marina. In order to solve this puzzle, you must divide the box into five portions, making sure each portion contains the exact same number and variety of candy.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    First count out how many sweets you have. There are five pieces of three types of candy and 10 pieces of a fourth type. You have to put two pieces of this fourth type of candy into each of the five portions.

Hint Two
    Look for sweets that are one per portion; in other words, varieties of candies that number five pieces in all. If you find two of these candies next to each other, you can draw a line through where they connect, since they can't exist in the same portion. Start by drawing in these lines.

Hint Three
    Do you see the three pieces of the same variety of candy in the third row? The leftmost two pieces are part of a single portion. The third of those three pieces and the identical piece of candy directly below it are part of a different portion.

    Now that you know that much, you shouldn't have too much trouble finishing the puzzle.
