This is the eighty-eighth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must examine the fireplace on the right. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which month it is.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    In order for the three-month period to burn more wood than another, it must also have more days.

    Three more bundles of wood means three more days in the period.

Hint Two
    What month has the fewest days in any given year?

    If you're having trouble, check a calendar!

Hint Three
    On non-leap years, February has only 28 days, making it the shortest month.

    Which three-month period containing February has the fewest number of days?


[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

As you work on this puzzle, think about how many days there are in each month.

[edit] When Completed

Correct!

The answer is 11, meaning November.

Since this is an average 365-day year, February will only have 28 days.

Therefore, the three-month period starting in February has a fewer number of days in which the family will burn wood.

[edit] Solution

The current month is November (11).

[edit] Progress

3560 Picarats and 270 Hint Coins.
