This is the one hundred and thirty-ninth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. This puzzle can be accessed through Professor Layton's Challenges. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine what time the plane will arrive in Los Angeles from New York.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Think about the rotation of the earth. The time in locations farther to the east is ahead of that of more western locales.

    Therefore, given a three-hour time difference, when it's noon in Los Angeles, it must be 15:00 in New York.

Hint Two
    Taking into account the time difference, the plane left Los Angeles at 15:00 New York time and landed at 20:00. Therefore, the flight itself must have taken five hours.

Hint Three
    The time difference has the reverse effect of the flight returning to Los Angeles.

    If the plane to Los Angeles left New York at noon New York time, you could also say it left New York at 9 a.m. Los Angeles time.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Factoring in that bothersome time difference can be tricky, but as long as you remember to account for it, you'll arrive at the correct answer without too much work.

[edit] When Completed

Good job!

The plane arrives back in Los Angeles at 14:00, or 2 p.m. Due to the three-hour time difference, when it's noon in Los Angeles, it's 3 p.m. in New York. The plane gets in New York at 8 p.m., so the actual flying time of the plane must be five hours. The flight back to Los Angeles also takes five hours, meaning that it arrived at 17:00 hours, or 5 p.m. New York time. Factor in the time difference to get the plane's arrival in Los Angeles: 14:00, or 2 p.m.

[edit] Solution


The plane arrives in Los Angeles at 14:00 (2 p.m.).
