Find the Volume is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

PuzzleEdit

A strangely shaped container sits before you.

All sides of the shape, save for depth, are of equal length.

All four points, A, B, C, and D, are located in the center of their respective sides. Additionally, line AD, line BC, and the depth of the container are all one foot.

What is the total volume of the figure in cubic feet? Don't worry about the thickness of the walls of the vessel.

You'll have a difficult time calculating the answer without rearranging things first. Think about cutting the shape along lines AD and BC.

How can you reform this shape to make things easier to understand?


SolutionEdit

IncorrectEdit

No, try again.

If your tactic is a series of complicated mathematical equations, you'll only make this puzzle more difficult for yourself. This one can actually be solved very quickly if you try reorganizing your thoughts.

CorrectEdit

Good work!

As shown above, the odd shape you were given can be reconfigured into a cube with a volume of one cubic foot.
