Copying the Menu is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

Puzzle

US Version

The menu you see here has been folded into thirds with print on both sides, meaning in total there are six pages to it. The boss needs lots of copies, but your copy machine can copy a maximum of two adjacent menu pages at once. To save time, you want to complete the copy of the menu in as few passes through the machine as possible.

What is the fewest number of passes through the machine you need to make to create a full duplicate of the menu?

Hints

Fold creatively and copy two pages at a time.

Just because a crease makes the menu sit one way doesn't mean you can't fold along that line in the other direction.

US Version

As you fold and copy, make sure you arrange each two-page spread in a way that ensures you don't copy any one page twice.

UK Version

As you fold and copy, make sure that you arrange each two-page spread in a way that ensures you don't copy any page twice.
