This is the one hundred and fifth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Firth. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out who scored the lowest amount of points and paid for lunch.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The only score you know is A's: 13 points. To get this many points after six spins of the wheel, she could have gotten two points on five occasions and three points once, for example.

    What other combinations of points would give A a score of 13?

Hint Two
    There are only three ways for A to have receieved 13 points after six spins.
    1 x 3 pts., 5 x 2 pts. = 13 pts.
    2 x 3 pts., 3 x 2 pts., 1 x 1 pt. = 13 pts.
    3 x 3 pts., 1 x 2 pts., 2 x 1 pt. = 13 pts.

    Now you can look at the wheel and work out how many points B and C would have received in each of these cases.

Hint Three
    Did you work out B's and C's scores in each of the cases outlined in Hint 2?

    When A gets 1, B gets 3. When A gets 2, B gets 1. When A gets 3, B gets 2. C gets the remaining points in each case.

    Oh, and don't forget that no two people got the same number of points, so you can rule out any combination that gives B or C the same score of 13 that A has.

Super Hint
    There are three ways for A to receive 13 points, and you can exclude any case in which B or C also gets 13 points.

    There's only one way left, and that leaves A with 13 points, B with 7, and C with 16.

    The one with the fewest points pays for lunch.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

You should be able to work out everyone's score based on A's.

[edit] When Completed

Correct!

B lost out and had to pay for everyone.

Spin, spin, spin! Don't you find yourself wanting to spin the lazy Susan when you get one at the restaurant?

[edit] Solution

B received the lowest score.

3710 Picarats and 214 Hint Coins.
