This is the one hundred and forty-sixth 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 the degrees of the angle ABC.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    There's no need to do any complicated calculations. Visualization is the important part.

    The three points are each in the center of the sides of a regular cube.

Hint Two
    The three points are each in the middle of a side on a regular cube. Think about the other center points. What would happen if you continued connecting center points in this fashion?

Hint Three
    Think about the regular geometric figures you can create with points A, B, and C.

    You could create a regular hexagon, couldn't you? And the internal angles of regular hexagons are always 120 degrees.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

This puzzle is more about visualization than calculation.

[edit] When Completed

Good job!

The answer is 120 degrees.

If you continued to connect the middle points of sides in this way, you would draw a regular hexagon. And the internal angles in regular hexagons are always 120 degrees!

[edit] Solution


Angle ABC is 120 degrees.

[edit] Progress

4903 Picarats and 230 Hint Coins.
