This is the ninety second puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Shmelmey and Shmarton. In order to solve this puzzle, you must indicate where a cut must be made in the wood to make two equal pieces.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Try counting the squares on the board. For two pieces to be equal, they have to have the same number of squares.

Hint Two
    The board is composed of 14 squares, so each of your two pieces will have seven squares. And you need to make two equal shapes, so you can't stray too far from the middle when making your cut.

    Try to visualize what the two shapes will look like. That should help.

Hint Three
    First off, look for two rectangles containing six squares each.

    There are only two ways of cutting out two separate six-square rectangles from the board. The important point is figuring out how to integrate the two remaining squares.

Super Hint
    If you make a one-square cut between the bottom-right square and one above it, you'll be close to solving this puzzle.

    Look for two bootlike shapes.

Bad luck.

It's not a particularly complicated cut that's required here.

Nice cut!

You're exactly right.

To seal the cave, the thieves flipped one of the pieces upright as shown above.

[edit] Solution


Make a cut as shown.
