This is the one hundred and seventeenth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Murphy. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which way the girl will be facing after 15 seconds on the teacup ride.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You know it takes 20 seconds to complete one rotation. That means in 15 seconds, you'll get a three-quarter rotation. So three-quarter rotations each for the base saucer, and cup gives you...

    That's a bit confusing, isn't it? Isn't there an easier way?

Hint Two
    The girl is sitting in the cup, so you'll need to add up all the rotataions of the base, saucer, and cup. In that case, you can express the problem in simple math.

    Each makes one three-quarter rotation, and one rotation is 360 degrees, so it's 270 degrees each.

Hint Three
    Calculate the total rotations of the base, cup, and saucer. That's 810 degrees (270 degrees times 3.)

    A full rotation is 360 degrees, and two full rotations will put you at 720 degrees. You can then go an additional 90 degrees from there.

    Where would that leave the girl facing?

Super Hint
    You'll end up with two full rotations and a 90-degree rotation. That means you only need to think about the 90-degree rotation.

    In other words: the direction she'll be facing is just a one-quarter rotation from her starting position. Where is that?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Are you thinking too hard about this?

[edit] When Completed


She'd be facing south. You can work this out by calculating the total rotation of the base, saucer, and cup:

270 degrees times 3 equals 810 degrees, which makes two full rotations with an added 90 degrees.

[edit] Solution

The girl will be facing south.

[edit] Progress

3850 Picarats and 214 Hint Coins.
