This is the ninetieth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the fountain. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which spout on the fountain would be useless for indicating one's age.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The puzzle asks for you to find a spout that's utterly useless, meaning the spout never gets used. Which one could that be?

Hint Two
    Read over the conditions that cause each spout to spray water. Then try applying that knowledge. For example, think about how the fountain would indicate the ages of 10 through 20.

Hint Three
    Spout A fires off to indicate one year, B fires for two, C fires for three, D fires for four, and so on.

    So, if spout I is meant to indicate nine, then...

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Think about the fountain's method of indicating age.

[edit] When Completed

Good catch!

The spout marked J is pretty much useless. Since A through I mark the numbers one through nine, and the spout in the middle indicates the number 10, spout J will never be used.

[edit] Solution


Spout J is useless.

[edit] Progress

2790 Picarats and 160 Hint Coins.
