This is the fourth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must examine the stairway on the left. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how many minutes it would take for the two men to take seven boxes to the third floor.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You can get the answer by calculating everything out, but it's a lot easier to visualize if you use the Memo function. After one minute has passed, how many boxes have been moved? And where are the locations of the two men at that time?

Hint Two
    After a minute is up, the larger man has carried two boxes up and the smaller man has carried one. The larger man is still upstairs, though, while the little guy has made it back down to the first floor.

    If this is the case, what's their progress after two minutes?

Hint Three
    At the end of two minutes, the larger fellow has made it down to the first floor again and is ready to bring up some more boxes. The little guy has brought another box upstairs, for a total of four boxes on the third floor. That means there are just three boxes left to move.

Super Hint
    In the earlier hints, you learnt that after two minutes have passed, four boxes have been brought upstairs and both men were back down on the first floor.

    If it takes 30 seconds for the little guy to get upstairs with one box, and the larger fellow can make it upstairs with two boxes in a minute...

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Rather than just trying to work the puzzle out in your head, use the Memo Function to make some notes.

[edit] When Completed


It would take three minutes to get all the boxes to the top floor. This puzzle gets a lot easier if you draw a diagram.

[edit] Solution

It would take three minutes to get all the boxes to the third floor.

[edit] Progress

50 Picarats and 20 Hint Coins.
