This is the forty-third puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Lucy. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the percentage chance that only two people will walk away with the own umbrella, assuming the labels aren't checked.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Don't lose focus of what's being asked.

    Keep in mind that you aren't being asked the percentage likelihood of you grabbing your own umbrella from a group of three.

Hint Two
    If two people have already successfully taken their own umbrellas, then who does the final umbrella belong to?

Hint Three
    Three umbrellas sit in a bin. Two people come by and take their own umbrellas by chance, but the third person fails to do so... Hey, is that even possible?

[edit] When Failed


Although this puzzle is asking about percentages, you shouldn't need a calculator to finish this one.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

If two people manage to grab their own umbrellas, the third person is left with only one umbrella to take: her own!

It's impossible for only two of the three to pick up their own umbrellas.

[edit] Solution

It is a 0% chance that only two people will pick up their own umbrellas.

[edit] Progress

1475 Picarats and 74 Hint Coins.
