This is the thirty third puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Raleigh. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the minimum number of siblings in the family.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Think about A, B and C. Who's the oldest? Who's the youngest?

Hint Two
    You know that A is the oldest, followed by B and then C.

    A also has an older brother.

    C also has a younger sister.

Hint Three
    Try making a chart laying out the conditions of Hint Two, and mark the genders of each known sibling. You should make an important realization.

    Also, just so you're clear, A is a male and B is a female.

Super Hint
    There are more than five siblings.

    If A has three younger sisters and C has three older brothers, then there must be at least three female siblings and three male siblings.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

It's not as simple as it might seem at the first glance.

[edit] When Completed

Right on!

The smallest possible number of siblings is six.

At first glance, it might seem like there are only five. But the fact that A says he has three younger sisters means there must be at least three female siblings. Likewise, the fact that C says she has three older brothers means there must also be at least three male siblings. So five siblings isn't quite enough.

[edit] Solution

There is a minimum of six siblings in the family.

[edit] Progress

855 Picarats and 108 Hint Coins.
