This is the one hundred and thirty seventh puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Minnie. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how many more 5 x 1 centimeter pieces of chocolate can be broken off the bar without including the hole.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Break up in the remaining chocolate bar into equal pieces. If you make each piece identical to the first piece, you'll end up with nine more pieces.

Hint Two
    If you break the remaining chocolate bar into nine equal pieces in the same vertical manner as the first piece, you'll end up with two pieces one the left side with pieces of the hole in them. So that's 9 - 2 = 7, right?

    Nope. You can do better. Try looking at it from a different angle.

Hint Three
    You don't have to break off all of the remaining pieces in the same way as the first one. Try breaking the pieces off horizontally from the left side of the chocolate bar.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

You need to bend your brain just a little.

[edit] When Completed

Cocoa-rrect!

Eight more pieces is exactly right.

As shown in the image above, if you break up the left side in a way that includes the entire hole in one piece, you can exclude that one and still make eight more pieces.

[edit] Solution

Eight more pieces can be broken off.
