This is the ninety-second puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Krantz. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which five-square plot contains the most value.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Gold ore is worth a whopping five times as much as copper, so focus on claiming some of that.

    Wouldn't it be great if you could find a five-square plot of land with two pieces of gold ore on it? Sadly, that doesn't seem likely.

Hint Two
    Unfortunately, no single five-square plot of land contains two pieces of gold ore.

    However, you just might be able to find a plot that has two pieces of silver ore, but remember, your first priority is choosing the plot with the highest total value.

Hint Three
    Copper is worth one, silver is worth three, and gold is worth five. Given these values, you should be able to find a single plot of land worth 10. Find this plot, and you've found your answer.
