This is the seventy seventh puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Horace. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how many minutes earlier Horace will arrive at the meeting point before his friend.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    If you're confused, try looking at an analog clock while thinking about the conditions of this puzzle.

Hint Two
    What's the difference between the actual time of our meeting and the time when I will arrive?

    If you can figure this out, you'll know when my friend will arrive if you think about him as the exact opposite.

Hint Three
    I think my watch is five minutes slow, so when I want to arrive on time, I show up five minutes earlier than the time shown on my watch.

    However, my watch is five minutes fast, so I'll actually end up arriving 10 minutes early.

Super Hint
    I'll arrive at our meeting point 10 minutes early. Since the conditions for my friend are the exact opposite of mine, he will arrive 10 minutes late. So then, what's the difference between our two arrivals?

    That's your answer!

Too bad!

This puzzle can be a tough one to wrap your head around at first. Try picking a set time for their meeting and working from there.

[edit] When Completed

Smart!

I'll arrive at our meeting point 20 minutes before my friend.

My watch is five minutes faster than the actual time. But I think my watch is five minutes slow, so I'll arrive five minutes before our meeting time, which will actually be ten minutes early. My friend is just the opposite: he'll be ten minutes late. Our difference, then, is 20 minutes.

[edit] Solution

Horace will arrive 20 minutes before his friend.

[edit] Progress

2450 Picarats and 199 Hint Coins.
