This is the eighteenth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must examine the streetlight. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how many bulbs will still bet lit after 12 hours.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The key is to think about the state of the lights after 12 hours.

Hint Two
    To begin with, all 10 lights were shining brightly in the night.

    Now try to imagine the scene 12 hours later.

Hint Three
    You don't need to do any math to answer this puzzle. If you just think about what streetlights are used for, the answer should be obvious.

Super Hint
    If you imagine that the power surge happened at midnight and the new bulbs were fitted and working shortly afterwards, what time will it be 12 hours later?

    Will there be any need for lights then?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

With a bit more thought, you might get a flash of inspiration.

[edit] When Completed

Very bright of you!

The answer is 0.

After 12 hours, it will no longer be dark outside, so all of the streetlights will be turned off.

[edit] Solution

Zero streetlights will be lit.

[edit] Progress

655 Picarats and 111 Hint Coins.
