This is the one hundred and twenty-sixth puzzle you'll encounter on Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mordy. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which set of plates would work in place of the number 4.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The 2, 1, and 3 are each represented by two brown plates.

    The plates for the 2 and 3 look the same, and neither of them look like numbers.

    Maybe they're being affixed to the door in some special way?

Hint Two
    Did you notice that only the plates to be affixed for the 1 are the same width as the available space?

    What would it look like if you put the plates in as they are? A minus sign?

    You need to turn them first. That's how you get a 1 out of these plates.

Hint Three
    If you affix the plates for the 1 as described in Hint 2, the remaining uncovered space in the square forms the number 1. How could you use the plates for the 2 and 3 to form those numbers in the same way?

    And which plates could you use for the number 4?

Super Hint
    Form the 2 by putting one of the plates on the left of the square, slightly down from the top, and the other in the diagonally opposite spot. For the 3, place both plates a little apart from each other on the left.

    How many plates do you need for the 4? The digit is a cross shape with a diagonal bar, but remember there are two ways of writing it. In any case, you'd probably need more than just one or two plates.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

There must be a particular way to affix those plates to the door.

[edit] When Completed


The answer is D.

Once the plates are affixed within each square, the uncovered space in the square forms the number. That's a handy way to save on materials!

[edit] Solution

Plates D can be used.

[edit] Progress

4620 Picarats and 223 Hint Coins.
