This is the one hundred and fifteenth 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 number is the answer to the addition of two two-digit numbers that are created by the same two numbers.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Once you see the pattern that runs through this puzzle, it's not very difficult to solve.

Hint Two
    15+51=66
    34+43=77
    53+35=88

    So is the pattern clear yet?

Hint Three
    Isn't it funny how adding a two-digit number to another two-digit number to another two-digit number with reversed digits always gives you a sum that's a multiple of 11?

Too bad!

Think hard about the puzzle and tray again.

[edit] When Completed

Good job!

12+21=33
35+53=88

As you can see, the sum of two two-digit numbers with inverted digits is always a multiple of 11. Of the six options presented, the only multiple of 11 is 44.

[edit] Solution
