This is the eighty-first puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Dean Delmona. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how far ahead the water jug would be after one complete rotation.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Remember that the stick isn't staying in one spot--it moves forward 20cm in one turn.

    Think about what else is moving.

Hint Two
    The position of the plank changes with the position of the stick and vice versa.

    What does the man have to do to the plank to make the stick move?

Hint Three
    Even as the stick moves forward, it's still rolling toward the back of the plank.

    Think about what this means for the final position of the jug.

    If it's too hard to imagine, try it out using a round object nearby.

Super Hint
    The plank rests on the stick.

    When the stick moves 20 cm along the ground, it slides the plank 20 cm forward at the same time.

    Taken together, this is the total distance moved by the jug.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

If the stick is moving, what else must be moving too?

[edit] When Completed

You're on a roll!

When the stick rolls round, it moves forward 20 cm. The plank also moves 20 cm as it's pushed.

Added together, the jug moves 40 cm.

[edit] Solution

The jug moves 40 cm.

[edit] Progress

3245 Picarats and 264 Hint Coins.
