This is the twenty-third puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Chippe. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out where the clock was split, making sure the numbers of each side add up to the same number.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    There's no secret tip that will crack this calculation.

    Start by making a good guess where the line falls, then add up the numbers in the two halves.

Hint Two
    Consider this! The sum of all the numbers around the whole circle is 78.

    So if the sum on each half of the clock is equal, what is half of 78?

Hint Three
    If the sum of all the numbers is 78, then the total of each half is 39.

    Make a rough guess where that dividing line might be, then add up each half.

    Adjust the line based on how far away each half is from 39.

Super Hint
    It all comes down to math once you know the secret that each half must add up to 39.

    Keep making a good guess where the crack might be until each half hits that number!
