This is the one hundred and forty-third puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. This puzzle can be accessed through Professor Layton's Challenges. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the values of each letter in the equation.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Each letter is represented by a single-digit number, so the possibilities for what number represents each letter are fairly limited.

Hint Two
    If you start by subbing in 1 for A and work your way through all the other numerical possibilities for A, you'll find your answer before long. What's more, if you use a calculator, trying out every possibility will take only a minute or two.

    But if you can, try to solve it just using your head.

Hint Three
    As detailed in Hint Two, if you substitute every digit for A and work your way up, you'll find the answer in the last half of your search.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Try running through your calculations one more time.

[edit] When Completed

Sharp thinking!


The numbers work out perfectly if you assign A a value of 8, B a value of 7, and C a value of 4.

At first, the possibilities for what goes where may have seemed daunting, but once you realize that only a few numbers can potentially replace A, everything starts coming together.

[edit] Solution


A is 8, B is 7, and C is 4.

[edit] Progress

4664 Picarats and 230 Hint Coins.
