This is the twenty first puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Dr. Andrew Schrader. In order to solve this puzzle, you must indicate where Dr. Schrader must stop drinking his medicine.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    It might be easiest to divide the liquid into five doses by looking at the bottle from the bottom. If each square portion is one dose, then on the first day you would drink one square, and on the next day, you'd need to drink one more.

Hint Two
    No matter how you tilt the bottle, there's no good way to get an even "square's worth" of medicine. So, how could you get that amount by dividing things up another way? For example, you could try putting two squares side by side, making a rectangle, and then drawing a line down the middle from corner to corner. The resulting triangle would equal the amount in one of the original squares.

Hint Three
    Try finding the potential rectangles talked about in Hint Two. You can create two horizontal rectangles using the center square and the square to its left or right.

Super Hint
    You've got to draw a line through one of two rectangles talked about in Hint Three. Try to figure out which direction to draw the line in.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Look at the shape of the bottle again, and figure out how to divide its contents into five equal parts.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

You can turn the bottle left or right and it will still work. Looking at the diagram, you can see that a diagonal line like the one shown divides the long rectangle into two. Since the rectangle makes up 2/5 of the medicine, halving it creates just the right amount!

[edit] Solution


Draw a line as shown.

[edit] Progress

445 Picarats and 89 Hint Coins.
