Land Disputes is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

Puzzle

Four people are arguing with one another about how to divide up a large chunk of land they inherited.

US Version

"We want to divide things up nice and even. Each piece of property should have a well and a house, and be exactly the same shape."

Can you divide the property up according to their wishes and end the bickering?

UK Version

"We want to divide things up nice and evenly, but each piece of property should have a well and a house, and be exactly the same shape."

Can you divide the property up according to their wishes and end the bickering?

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The feuding parties have demanded that the land be divided into four identically sized properties. You'll have a much easier time achieving this if you start all your divisions from the middle of the large chunk of land.

If you find a group of houses or wells together, you know where one of your property lines needs to go.

Now you just need to use a little logic to determine where the lines need to pass through.

The division lines for all four properties run through the center of the map.

You'd do well to try dividing things up further after you've decided how to allot the four squares in the center of the map.


Solution

Incorrect

Nope, try again!

If you don't solve this land dispute for these folks, they might never stop fighting.

Correct

That's correct!

Finally, an end to the bickering!

Dividing the land like that doesn't seem very sensible, but if it keeps the owners happy, you can't really complain, can you?
