This is the eightieth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Pascal. In order to solve this puzzle, you must distribute the luggage so that each porter carries an even weight.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Start by having them hold the luggage in as many ways as you can think of. Perhaps you'll come across the solution.

Hint Two
    It appears that even if the porters take one piece of luggage each, they won't be able to carry both pieces. What to do, then?

    One fact you should bear in mind is that in all, the two pieces of luggage weigh 40 lbs. or less.

Hint Three
    One of the pieces of luggage must weigh more than 20 lbs. That's why it's impossible for the porters to take one piece each.

    Is there some way the porters could work together to carry the luggage?

Super Hint
    Why not try placing both pieces of luggage right in the middle, between the two porters, and then ringing the bell?

    What do you suppose will happen?
