This is the sixty-eighth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gerard. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine the number of five-sided shapes hidden in the picture.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    There are no equilateral pentagons within the shape, so all the ones you do find will have at least two sides with different lengths. Count each one you spot.

Hint Two
    Count every five-sided shape you can find! Each pentagon you spot can be reproduced on a different section of the picture by rotating the image 90 degrees. That means that for every type of pentagon you find, you've actually found four more pentagons.

Hint Three
    Surround the square in the middle of the picture with triangles from within the picture to make different pentagons. Make a special effort to look for pentagons formed by attaching multiple triangles to the square in the picture. These are usually the hardest to spot.

[edit] When Completed

Nice work!

Three different types of pentagons are hidden in this picture. Since each shape can face four different directions, you have a total of 12 unique pentagons.

[edit] Solution


There are 12 different pentagons in the picture.

[edit] Progress

2395 Picarats and 121 Hint Coins.
