This is the forty eighth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Dean Delmona. In order to solve this puzzle, you must remove one matchstick to display a length that is 1/1000 of 100M.


[edit] Hints

Hint One

    We're talking about length, so "M" stands for "meters."

Hint Two
    Is it "00M"? Nope.

    The answer is exactly 1/1000 of the original value.

Hint Three
    No matter how much you play with the number, you can't get 1/1000 of the original value.

    Why don't you try changing the unit of measurement?

Super Hint
    1/1000 of 1 km is 1 m.

    One one-thousandth of 100 m is 0.1 m. In other words, 10 cm.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!
