This is the one hundred and forty second puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must examine the machine. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which symbol fits where the question mark sits.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Look at the diagram carefully. It seems that several of the symbols share some shapes.

Hint Two
    The symbols are arranged in a pentagon.

    Have a look at the symbols in the corners of the pentagon. Compared to the others they are much simpler, aren't they?

Hint Three
    Now that you know the symbols in the corners are simple, you'll see that the other symbols are a little more complex. There must be some kind of rule that connects the simple ones with the complex ones, right?

Super Hint
    Each symbol on the pentagon's edges is made from a combination of two of the corner symbols.

    For example, combing the circle in the top-left corner with the M in the bottom-right corner will give you an M inside a circle, which is the symbol on the top-right edge.

    Which symbol goes in the space which the question mark?

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Looks like you pressed the wrong button. Think about it, and try again.

[edit] When Completed

Spot on!

Each of the five symbols on the pentagon's edges is made up of the two corner symbols that are neither adjacent nor directly opposite.

In this case, the circle and triangle symbols combine to reveal the identity of the mystery button.

[edit] Solution

The fourth button must be pressed.

[edit] Progress

5720 Picarats and 300 Hint Coins.
