This is the seventy-sixth 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 swap two people around the get the same male-female pattern, whether every person or every second person is counted.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Try imagining the group as a row instead of a circle. That might make things a little clearer in your mind.

Hint Two
    You can make a lot of swaps that result in similar patterns.

    But don't forget that to solve this particular puzzle, you must start counting from the person labeled A.

Hint Three
    Swap out the person labeled C...but with whom?

Super Hint
    The new pattern you must create is female, female, female, male, female, male, male.

    The order will also be the same if you only count every fourth person. Once you make your swap, try counting if off.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Try going around again. You must have missed something along the way.

[edit] When Completed


You just need to swap C and D. That way you'll get the same male-female pattern counting every person, every second person, and every fourth person too!

Did you notice that you also get that same pattern if you start from A and count every third person or every fifth person going counterclockwise?

[edit] Solution

C and D must be swapped.

[edit] Progress

2940 Picarats and 264 Hint Coins.
