Three Children is a puzzle in the UK version of Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

PuzzleEdit

The king of an ancient kingdom had three children, A, B, and C.

The difference in age between A and B is three years, while the difference between B and C is two years. A is definitely not the oldest son.

How many possible ways are there to order the ages of the three children?

HintsEdit




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The difference between A and B is three years, and the difference between B and C is two years.

This means you can rule out the order BAC.


SolutionEdit

CorrectEdit

That's right! There are four possible orders.

A and B are three years apart, while B and C are two years apart, so that rules our BAC.

A may not be the oldest son, but what if A was the oldest daughter? That means you have to include orders where A comes first.
