This is the ninety-sixth puzzle that appears in the US version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Pavel. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine how many seconds it will take to reach the eighth floor from the fourth floor.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    To solve this puzzle, you must base the time it takes to climb the rest of the way on the amount of time it took to make it to the fourth floor.

    How many flights of stairs did you climb between the first and fourth floors again?

Hint Two
    If you start on the first floor, you'll travel through the second-, third-, and fourth-floor stairs before you reach the fourth floor.

    When you continue on from the fourth floor, you'll have to climb the fifth-, sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-floor stairs before you reach the eighth floor.

Hint Three
    There are three flights of stairs between the first and fourth floors.

    Between the fourth floor and the eighth floor, you have an additional four flights of stairs to climb.

    If you've got all that, then you just have to do the math.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

You're on the fourth floor already, so you've already come half the way to the eighth floor... Or have you?

[edit] When Completed

You're right!

Going from the first to the fourth floor means you climbed a total of three flights of stairs. Going from the fourth to the eighth floor means you will have to go up an additional four flights of stairs.

[edit] Solution


It will take 64 seconds to go from the fourth to the eighth floor.

[edit] Progress

3905 Picarats and 194 Hint Coins.
