This is the seventy-seventh puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Pavel. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which ornament must be placed in the empty space to balance out the bar.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The center strand of ornaments won't affect the balance of the bar, so ignore it.

    Also, the two strands hanging farthest out on the bar are the same weight, so try comparing the ornaments on the far left to the ornaments on the far right. You might find out something new.

Hint Two
    Look at the strands on the far left and the far right. While they both contain sun and moon ornaments, only the far-right strand has a star. By comparing the ornaments on these two strands, you can probably figure out how many suns and moons it takes to equal the weight of a star.

Hint Three
    A single star weighs the same as one sun and one moon together.

    Now that the weight of one star is clear, you should be able to compare the two strands next to the center strand.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Concentrate on working out which of the three ornaments must be the heaviest.

[edit] When Completed

Good job!

The crescent-moon ornament is just heavy enough to balance things out. A single star ornament weighs the same as one sun and one moon together. The strand of ornaments that is supposed to counterbalance the one with a question mark doesn't have any star ornaments, but if you compare the ornaments as shown above, you can figure out what should go in the question mark space regardless.

[edit] Solution


The moon ornament will restore balance.

[edit] Progress

3565 Picarats and 187 Hint Coins.
