This is the one hundred and seventh puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Joseph. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how many guest rooms are in the hotel.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Take it one floor at a time, starting with the second floor. The number of guest rooms on a floor will equal the number of windows on the floor divided by two.

Hint Two
    The number of windows on the sixth and seventh floors is eight per floor.

    How many guest rooms is that per floor?

Hint Three
    Every floor from the second to the fifth has 16 windows in total. So how many rooms are there on each of those floors? If you've worked that out, you just need to do the math to get the total number of guest rooms in the hotel.

Super Hint
    If your math really isn't working, try counting all the windows you can see from the second floor upward.

    The number of windows you can see is half of the total number, and each room has two windows. If you put these two together, you'll realize that the number of windows you can see on these floors is the same as the total number of guest rooms.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

There must be some guest rooms that you forgot to count.

[edit] When Completed

Correct!

The hotel has 40 guest rooms.

They must have built the stairs and elevators right in the center where there are no windows.

[edit] Solution

There are 40 guest rooms.

4210 Picarats and 279 Hint Coins.
