“Here is a schematic plan of an orchard, with the green circles representing trees. The orchard belongs to four brothers and they want to split it between them. Can you divide the orchard into four parts, such that each part is the same size and same shape, and has the same number of trees?”

    3. Luke: Professor Layton, I’ve got it!

      Prof. Layton: Yes, you got it, you annoying little brat, but you don’t have to act like an obnoxious twit every single time you solve a bloody puzzle. And stop following me already. Or at least put on a pair of pants so you don’t make me look like a bloody pedophile. I jump out of my skull every time someone asks me if I’d like to have a seat over there…

    4. I don’t even understand the question so I’d just have two brothers killed and split it two ways.
