This is the nineteenth puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Stripey. To complete the puzzle, you must determine the minimum number of seconds it would take the older sister to catch up to the younger sister.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    If they both keep walking, the older sister will get one metre closer to the younger sister every second, so she would catch up with her after one hundred seconds. However, there is a way she could catch up sooner.

Hint Two
    One detail we don't know here is how far away the school is. For the older sister to catch up in the shortest possible time, where would the school have to be?

Hint Three
    If the school is located as close as possible, it will take less time for the older sister to catch up.

Super Hint
    If the school was located one hundred metres from the house, the younger sister would already have arrived at her destination when the older sister set off.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

Go over the facts again, and try to imagine who is where.

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

If the school is located one hundred metres from home, the older sister will just be leaving the house when the younger sister arrives. So it could be possible that she would catch up in as little as fifty seconds.

[edit] Solution

It would take a minimum of fifty seconds for the older sister to catch up to the younger sister.

[edit] Progress

715 Picarats and 66 Hint Coins.
