This is the one hundred and thirty-fifth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the small door. In order to solve this puzzle, you must arrange the numbers so that each horizontal, vertical, and diagonal line add up to the same number.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You're out to make each horizontal, vertical, and diagonal line of four numbers equal the same number, so first you need to find that number.

    The total is there for you to find, so just examine the square until you see it.

Hint Two
    One diagonal string of numbers appears to be in place already. The numbers within it add up to 18.

Hint Three
    Now that you know each string of numbers needs to add up to 18, all you need to do is fill in the blank spaces with the correct tiles. As you start filling in spaces on the square, you'll be left with fewer and fewer squares to work with.

    Lay down a line, make sure it totals 18, and then keep on working with what you've got. You'll make your way to the solution sooner or later.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

At least one string of four numbers isn't adding up to the same total as all the others.

[edit] When Completed

Very nice!

Each horizontal, vertical, and diagonal line of four tiles adds up to 18 when placed in the correct positions.

Now, onward to freedom!

[edit] Solution


Arrange the numbers as shown.
