This is the one hundred and twenty-fourth puzzle that appears in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village. This puzzle can be accessed through Professor Layton's Challenges. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which ladder rung the water will be level with after three hours.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Before you get started on any calculations, read the explanation very thoroughly.

Hint Two
    The end of the rope ladder is under the surface of the ocean. Try to picture this.

    You'll see how easy this puzzle really is.

Hint Three
    The boat is floating in the ocean!

    It's not going to sink when the water level rises, is it?

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

The water level will be at the ninth rung, just as it was in the beginning.

If a boat is floating in the ocean, it rises with the tide, so the water level will never change relative to the rungs of the rope ladder.

You shouldn't get caught out by by ancient riddles like this one!

[edit] Solution


The water level will be at the ninth rung.

[edit] Progress

4435 Picarats and 200 Hint Coins.
