This is the thirtieth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Madelaine. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which girl ate which slice of cake.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    A and B each stated two things, one of which is true and one false. Start with one of A's statements, assume it's a lie, and see how that affects the rest of the statements.

Hint Two
    Let's assume that A's statement that "C ate the medium slice" is false. That would mean that the statement "B had the large one" must be true.

    If that were true, however, both of B's statements would be false. You know for sure that one of B's statements is true, so the original assumption is faulty.

Hint Three
    Since the assumption in Hint 2 was proven faulty, A's statement that "C ate the medium slice" must be true.

    This should tell you which of B's statements is false. Look at each in turn.

Super Hint
    The previous hints have shown that C ate the medium slice, so B's statement "I had the medium slice" is false. That must mean that B's other statement "A had the large slice" is true. The rest is easy!

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Have another look at the statements and consider them one at a time.

[edit] When Completed


The small slice was eaten by B, the medium slice by C, and the large slice by A.

A must have wanted to cover up her greed, but why did B bother to lie?

[edit] Solution

A ate the large slice, B ate the small slice, and C ate the medium slice.

[edit] Progress

900 Picarats and 111 Hint Coins.
