This is the seventy-seventh puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Sebastian. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use the red and blue hammers to make the counters display the same number.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Each time you ring a bell with a red or blue hammer, the counter goes up by a fixed amount. Try to work out these amounts by using each hammer and noting the outcome.

Hint Two
    Regardless of the bell, the same-colored hammer will always increase the counter by the same amount.

    If you ring the bells and watch the counters carefully, you should be able to work out the function of each hammer.

Hint Three
    There is a way to make all three numbers match in just six moves.

    Once you work out the pattern, look for the simplest possible method of reaching the same number on each counter.

Super Hint
    The lowest common value for all three bells is 16.

    Now that you have a goal set for you, all that's left to do is work out which hammers to hit in order to reach it.
