This is the one hundred and thirtieth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Bram. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which weights were taken off the rack, arranging them in the correct order.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    If may seem as if there isn't enough information to go on here, but that's not true. There are more than enough clues in the text of the puzzle. Once you realize what the puzzle is saying, you will be able to determine which weights need to go in the lineup.

Hint Two
    There are two possible lineups that work. That is to say, there are only four weights that work, but two ways to line them up.

Hint Three
    What you must focus on is the 8 kg difference in the lineup. There is only one pairing that results in an 8 kg difference.

Super Hint
    You can only get an 8 kg difference by placing the 1 kg weight next to each other. It's not possible to create two differences of 7 kg if the 1 kg weight or the 9 kg weight occupies the leftmost or rightmost position, so these weights must be in the middle. All you need to do is fill in the left and right spots with weights that are 7 kg heavier or lighter than the weights next to them.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Check your work to make sure you haven't made any miscalculations.

[edit] When Completed


There are two possible answers: 8, 1, 9, 2 or 2, 9, 1, 8. The only way to get the 8 kg difference is to have the 1 kg and 9 kg weights next to each other.

[edit] Solution


Arrange the weights as shown.
