This is the one hundred and eighteenth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mayor Billson. In order to solve this puzzle, you must divide the pawns to make sure two black and two white pawns are enclosed in areas of the same shape.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The pawns seem to be a bit more evenly distributed this time.

    Start by considering where you can cut to split the board in two with an equal number of black and white pawns in each half.

Hint Two
    From the way the pawns are positioned, a straight, vertical line down the middle seems like a safe bet.

    Now try dividing the board into quarters.

Hint Three
    You can include all the pawns in the leftmost column, two black and one white, within the same section.

    You still need one more pawn in that section, though. How can you manage that?

Super Hint
    In addition to the one white and two black pawns in the leftmost column, you'll want to include the white pawn in B3. Then you need to make the two sections in the left half of the board the same size and shape.

    Once you've managed that, simply draw the same set of lines on the right and you'll have the answer before you.
