 Fruit prices (Posted on 2012-06-05)
At the store, there is a rule for determining the price of fruit. An apple costs 50¢, a pear costs 40¢, and an orange costs 60¢. It seems like the rule is 10¢ per letter, but a lemon does not cost 50¢. How much does a lemon cost?

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT IT TO COST?

A: In my store all letters are free, except l=50c,r=40c,g=20c, and m is lemon's price minus 10c. So an appLe costs 50¢, a peaR costs 40¢, and an oRanGe costs 60¢. if you want to sell a lemon for 90cr then m=80c  LeMon=90.K

B: In my store all letters are free, except p=10c, e=30c,g=30c as well, and m is lemon's price minus 30c. So an aPPlE costs 50¢, a PEar costs 40¢, and an oranGE costs 60¢. if you want to sell a lemon for 90c then m=60c,   lEMon=90

Need I continue??
