Fruit prices (Posted on 2012-06-05) Difficulty: 1 of 5
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?

O+R+A+N+G+E=15+18+1+14+7+5=60
L+E+M+O+N=12+5+13+15+14=59
