This is the eighty-fourth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gertie. In order to solve this puzzle, you must move the stack of pancakes one at a time to the plate on the right, without stacking bigger pancakes on top of smaller ones.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Having trouble? Just follow the hints given to you in Pancake Stacks 2. This is the last hint you're going to get for this kind of puzzle, so it would be a waste to spend another hint coin here.

Hint Two
    Looks like you went and spent that hint coin anyway. Must be nice having hint coins to burn. OK then, here's a little fun fact for you.

    These pancake puzzles are based on a puzzle called the Tower of Hanoi, which can be solved using a basic concept in computer science known as recursion. Sure, it's not much of a hint, but it is interesting stuff, isn't it?

Hint Three
    Well, look at that, you spent yet another hint coin. All right, moneybags, time for more fun facts. Edouard Lucas, the man who thought up the Tower of Hanoi puzzle, introduced the puzzle saying that it was based on an Indian myth detailing the creation and destruction of the world. Though the myth is quite fascinating, many people believe Lucas fabricated it.
