This is the sixty-first puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the fence. In order to solve this puzzle, you must arrange the numbers so that each row, column and diagonal add up to the same number.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    First, start by flipping all the panels to see which numbers there are.

    Surprisingly, there are only a few different numbers you can see.

Hint Two
    There are only three different numbers: 1, 2, and 3.

    What do these numbers add up to?

Hint Three
    Adding 1, 2, and 3 gives you 6.

    With a bit of trial and error, you should be able to arrange the panels so that the lines add up to 6 vertically, horizontally, and diagonally.

Super Hint
    Here are the diagonal combinations.

    One is 2, 2, 2.

    The other is 3, 2, 1 from top to bottom.

    The remaining four panels are up to you to work out.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

There are more numbers on the backs of the panels. Which numbers do you have to choose from?

[edit] When Completed


There are actually a few valid solutions, but here's one example:

2 1 3
3 2 1
1 3 2

Every line of three digits adds up to six. As each panel has only two possible digits, you don't have many three-digit totals to consider.

[edit] Solution


Arrange the digits as shown.

[edit] Progress

2030 Picarats and 145 Hint Coins.
