This is the nineteenth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Berta. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how many different routes can be taken along the bridge by crossing over four black squares and three white squares.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Your task is to find all the routes that meet the conditions.

    Touching four black squares and three white ones means you have to cross the bridge in seven moves, so you can't afford to backtrack.

Hint Two
    Once you've figured out the types of routes that will work, just go ahead and count them up one by one.

    As Hint One mentioned, backtracking won't work. If you keep the other conditions in mind, you should be fine.

Hint Three
    One route is to go straight all the way to the top row and turn right.

    Another is to go straight to the second row from the top, turn right, and then turn left again at the right column.

    These are just two of several different possibilities. Count each one!

Super Hint
    There are more than 10 routes, but less than 20.

    Keep on counting! Or...start guessing!

Too bad!

You can move vertically and horizontally but not diagonally.

Count the routes again.

There are 15 different routes. More than you'd think, huh?
