This is the one hundred and forty eighth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must examine the brick wall on the left. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how many boxes contain gems.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    If you try to consider the entire cube at once, you'll just end up in a muddle.

    Try taking in one row at a time, starting from the view that shows the fewest gems for that particular row.

Hint Two
    Views B and C look at the cube from the side. When working out how many gems there are in the topmost row, you only need to consider the top rows of these views. Try comparing them with view A.

    In views B and C, there is one gem in the central column of each. These views can't contradict one another, so there can only be one gem, right in the center of the row. This corresponds with the central gem in view A.

Hint Three
    For the second row from the top, you only need to consider the middle row of views B and C.

    From view B you can see two gems, while for view C you can see one. For these views to agree, these can only be two gems. This doesn't contradict view A, either.

Super Hint
    When working out how many gems are in the bottommost row, look at the bottom rows of views B and C.

    In view C, two gems can be seen, but in view B, only one can. The only way views A, B, and C can agree is if there are two games in this row.

    How many are there in total?

Too bad!

If you're getting confused, try drawing it out and see if that helps.

Only five of the boxes contain gemstones. Less than it might seem at first, eh?

Five boxes contain gems.
