This is the seventh puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must investigate the back shelving. To complete the puzzle, you must determine the total weight of the sugar on both scales.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Work out which numbers would not display properly due to the broken section.

Hint Two
    The four numbers that would be affected by the broken section are 0, 2, 6 and 8.

Hint Three
    Look at the numbers 0, 2, 6 and 8, and figure out which ones would turn into other numbers if their bottom-left did not display.

Super Hint
    The scales on the right are displayed a weight that is one gram lighter than the correct weight. The only number that would work here is '6'. Try to work out the number on the left-hand scales using the same method.

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

There are only certain number it could be. Figure out which numbers would be affected by the broken section.

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

The actual weight of the sugar was eight grams on the left-hand scales, and six grams on the right-hand scales. Maybe it's time to get those scales fixed.

[edit] Solution

The total weight of the sugar is 14 grams.

[edit] Progress

265 Picarats and 24 Hint Coins.
