This is the twenty-seventh puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must investigate the house to the right of Mayor Lowonida. To complete the puzzle, you must determine which floor each person lives on.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    According to D, the floors they each live on are an equal distance apart. If they lived two floors apart, A's comment doesn't work, and if they lived three floors apart, a nine-storey building would not be tall enough. This means they must lie just one floor apart from each other.

Hint Two
    Continuing on from hint one...
    A's comment tells us that A lives on the lowest floor of the group and D lives on the highest floor.

Hint Three
    Continuing on from hint two...
    B and C live one floor apart. B says he lives on floor seven or eight, but if he lived on floor seven then C would have to live on an even-numbered floor, so that can't be correct.This means B must live on the eighth floor.

Super Hint
    Let's go over the facts. The four people each live one floor apart, with A at the bottom and D at the top. B lives on the eighth floor, so D must live higher than this on the ninth floor. Now you just need to go over the comment again to figure out where the other two live.

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

Why don't you consider how many floors apart they live from each other?

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

A lives on the sixth floor, C lives on the seventh floor, B lives on the eighth floor, and D lives on the ninth floor. Figuring out how far apart they live from each other is a shortcut to the solution.

[edit] Solution

  • A lives on the 6th floor.
  • B lives on the 8th floor.
  • C lives on the 7th floor.
  • D lives on the 9th floor.

[edit] Progress

1030 Picarats and 80 Hint Coins.
