This is the twenty-ninth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Finch. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out the ages of the children.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You should be able to work out Nat's age easily. You know the month in which she was born last year, but when was the letter written?

Hint Two
    Nat is one year old.

    When you multiply that by the ages of Kat and Pat, you need to get 36.

    Here are the possible combinations:
    1x36, 2x18, 3x12, 4x9, and 6x6.

Hint Three
    The sum of all three children's ages is 13. The youngest child is 1, so the sum of the two older children's ages must equal 12.

Super Hint
    Kat and Pat are the same age.
    You need to find a number that when multiplied by itself equals 36 and when added to itself equals 12.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Can you glean any information from the date on which the letter was written?

[edit] When Completed


Their ages are 6, 6, and 1. It only works if the older siblings are the same age. They are, in fact, twins!

[edit] Solution

The brother is 6, the older sister is 6, and the younger sister is 1.

[edit] Progress

1030 Picarats and 111 Hint Coins.
