This is the one hundred and thirty-second puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the painting on the right wall. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which painting the appraiser will receive after the brothers divide the paintings bewteen themselves, making sure the older brother receives a set of paintings worth twice what the younger brother receives.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This appraiser doesn't seem as if he's exactly on the up-and-up. He might very well be trying to appraise things in a way that works to his advantage.

Hint Two
    None of the paintings the elder brother gets are worth more than any single painting the younger brother receives.

Hint Three
    The older brother inherits three paintings, and the younger brother inherits one painting.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Maybe you should run through your calculations one more time.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

The appraiser receives painting E.

The older brother inherits paintings A, C, and D, which are worth $120,000 total. The little brother gets a single painting worth $60,000, half of what his brother gets.

In the end, the appraiser takes home the most expensive painting of all. My, isn't that convenient!

[edit] Solution


The appraiser will receive painting E.

[edit] Progress

4195 Picarats and 230 Hint Coins.
