Which Finger? is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


When counting on his finger, this eccentric man counts in the order you see in the picture below. When he counts from one to five, he returns to his thumb and continues counting in the same order, starting with six.

If he continues counting in this way, which finger would he land on when he gets to 763?

Circle the correct fingertip.

You're not thinking too hard, are you? Try using your own fingers to count.

No matter how big the number, it will always be counted according to the same rule.

Don't think too hard!

Count to 20 and see where that takes you. If you still don't get the hint, try counting to 30.

You can do it!

You're using your fingers to count the last digit (the digit in the ones column). So, if you count to 763...



Too bad!

Pay attention to the rules he uses to count on his fingers!


High five!

That's right. He'll land on the pinky.
No matter how high you count, the finger that corresponds to the ones column never changes.

All numbers ending in three or eight end on the pinky.
