This is the seventy-sixth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Aldus. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how many boxes can fit insides the crates.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Let's establish this right away: if you use the crates in the normal way, you can only fit five boxes in each one.

Hint Two
    If you can fit five boxes in each crate, the maximum number of boxes should be 10.

    There's more to it than that, however. Try to think of other ways you can use the crates. You should find a way to fit more boxes inside.

Hint Three
    When you fill up one of these crates, there is always some space left over. Is there some way you can use this space effectively?

Super Hint
    When filling the crates separately, you can only fit five boxes in each. However, if you put the two crates together with the open sides facing each other, there is space for an extra two boxes.

    How many does that add up to?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

There's a trick to this. Try to think outside the box, so to speak.

[edit] When Completed

You pack some brainpower!

12 boxes will fit. The trick is to put the two crates together with the open sides facing each other. Then you can carry more boxes without any of them sticking out.

[edit] Solution

12 boxes can fit inside the crates.

[edit] Progress

2575 Picarats and 164 Hint Coins.
