Nose to Nose is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

PuzzleEdit

Four horses are running around a course made up of several concentric circles.

Horse A runs one lap an hour on its course.
Horse B runs two laps an hour on its course.
Horse C runs three laps an hour on its course.
Horse D runs four laps an hour on its course.
All four horses line up at the bottom of the circle and start running their courses at the same time. How many minutes will take until all four horses are lined up nose to nose on a straight line again.

HintsEdit




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

It won't take even an hour for the horses to line up nose to nose once more.

All the horses' noses have to be lined up along the same straight line, but nowhere does it say that the horses must face the same direction.


SolutionEdit

IncorrectEdit

Nope, try again.

The horses must be lined up nose to nose, but the puzzle doesn't say anything about which direction they're facing.

CorrectEdit

The horses will line up nose to nose 30 minutes after they begin running.

Despite the fact that two horses will be on the far side of the track, the four horses will still be lined up nose to nose.
