This is the one hundred and thirty fifth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Alfie. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use the scales to determine the order of the jams from lightest to heaviest.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Identify the boxes that share a jam with each other. By weighing these boxes together, you can compare the weight of the two jams that aren't the same.

Hint Two
    Try comparing the red/blue box with the red/green box. You should be able to identify whether the blue jam is heavier than the green jam or vice versa.

Hint Three
    Continuing on from Hint Two, try to figure out the weight of the red jam.

    To do so, compare the red/green box with the blue/green box. You should find that blue > green > red.

Super Hint
    Thinking of red, green, and blue as 1, 2, and 3 temporarily (lightest to heaviest), you'll find that the yellow/yellow box and the blue/green box are equal in weight. This means that the two yellow jams equal 3 + 2 (the relative weights of the blue and green jams).

    In other words, one yellow jam has a weight of 2.5. If you fit that into what you know about the rest, you're done!

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

There's a certain knack to knowing which boxes to weight together.

[edit] When Completed


Blue > Yellow > Green > Red

Comparing the red/blue box with the red/green box shows that blue > green.

Comparing the red/blue box with the blue/green box shows that green > red.

And finding that the yellow/yellow box is equal to the blue/green box tells you that yellow is between blue and green!

[edit] Solution


Assign the numbers to the jams as shown.
