This is the forty-seventh puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must examine the door and the end of the corridor. In order to solve this puzzle, you must solve the equations to find the code to the door.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    So STAR must represent a number that is small enough to produce a single digit when multiplied by itself.

    Once you figure out the value of STAR, you're well on your way to solving the remaining equations.

Hint Two
    STAR times STAR produces a single-digit answer, so the value of STAR could only equal 1, 2, or 3.

    But since STAR times STAR does not equal STAR, we can safely eliminate 1.

    The value of STAR must be either 2 or 3.

Hint Three
    If STAR were 2, that would make 4 the value of CLUB.

    In that case, STAR multiplied by CLUB would equal 8. But that can't be correct, since STAR times CLUB is a two-digit number.

    Therefore, the values of STAR and CLUB must be 3 and 9, respectively.

Super Hint
    STAR is 3 and CLUB is 9. Therefore, DIAMOND is 2 and SPADE is 7.

    Multiplying 7 by CRESCENT gives you a two-digit answer containing two numbers you haven't yet used. If you go through the possible multiples of seven, you should be able to work it out.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Rework your calculations one more time.

[edit] When Completed

Correct! CRESCENT is 8 and TRIANGLE is 6.

STAR times STAR is a single-digit answer, so STAR must be 1, 2, or 3. However, since 1 times 1 would be 1 again, we can eliminate that. If STAR were 2, CLUB would be 4, but then the next equation, 2 times 4, would not produce a two-digit answer. Therefore, STAR is 3, CLUB is 9, DIAMOND is 2, and SPADE is 7.

After that, just try unused numbers to fill in the other symbols and find the correct values.

[edit] Solution

The code is 86.
