This is the one hundred and second puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Maya. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which books were bought for a total of 99 pounds.
 When Failed
Double-check your calculations and try again.
 When Completed
Right on the money!
You bought four books with prices of 27, 33, 15, and 24 pounds. Identifying the numbers that add up so that the second digit is nine is a common approach to solving this type of problem.
By the way, 99 is a multiple of three. Did you notice that if you chose only the books whose prices are multiples of three, you also got the right answer?
Select the books as shown.
3475 Picarats and 249 Hint Coins.
