This is the fourteenth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must examine the menu on the right. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out what last item was ordered at table 4.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Try comparing the two tables that have the most similar items.

Hint Two
    Calculate the total bill for each table in terms of cups of tea. Start with tables 1 and 3.

Hint Three
    Tables 1 and 3 have the same amount of juice, so ignore the juice in the comparison.

    That leaves you with a cup of tea and a plate of toast on table 1, and three cups of tea on table 3.

    You can then work out that one plate of toast costs the same as two cups of tea.

Super Hint
    You've have learned that one plate of toast costs the same as two cups of tea, so now take a look at table 2.

    If you replace the toast with tea, you'll have four cups of tea on the table. What must the last item on table 4 be?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Maybe you should make yourself a cup of tea to help you concentrate.

[edit] When Completed

Tea-riffic!

A cup of tea is correct!

If you look at tables 1 and 3, you can deduce that a plate of toast costs the same as two cups of tea. From here, you can figure out that the total price of the food ordered by each table is the same as the cost of four cups of tea.

[edit] Solution

A cup of tea was the last ordered item.

[edit] Progress

430 Picarats and 84 Hint Coins.
