This is the twenty fifth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must examine the Laytonmobile. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how many hours it will take to get everyone to their destination using one car.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The car seats six people, so after one hour the first six people arrive at the destination. Once five are dropped off, however, somebody has to drive the car back to pick up everyone else.

Hint Two
    It takes two hours to drop off the first five people and drive back to get another load of passengers.

    There are six people still waiting, so the driver will load up as many as possible before heading back...

Hint Three
    When picking up the second round of passengers, can you load up all six people who are waiting?

    Don't forget about the driver...

Super Hint
    After dropping off the second load of five people, it's taken three hours and somebody still needs to drive back and get the last person waiting.

    It takes one hour each way, so you should be able to figure out the final answer by now.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Don't overlook anything...

[edit] When Completed


It will take five hours.

Even though six people can ride at once, somebody needs to drive the car back to where the others are waiting, so it will require three trips to get all 12 people to the destination.

[edit] Solution

It will take five hours.

[edit] Progress

710 Picarats and 105 Hint Coins.
