Fruit prices (
Posted on 20120605
)
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?

59¢.
A+P+P+L+E=1+16+16+12+5=50
P+E+A+R=16+5+1+18=40
O+R+A+N+G+E=15+18+1+14+7+5=60
L+E+M+O+N=12+5+13+15+14=59
