There is a clothing store in Bartlesville. The owner has devised his own method of pricing items. A vest costs $20, socks cost $25, a tie costs $15 and a blouse costs $30. Using the method, how much would a pair of underwear cost?

I have noticed that :

 

vest = 4 letters = 20 dollars

 

socks = 5 letters = 25 dollars 

 

tie = 3 letters = 15 dollars 

 

blouse = 6 letters = 30 dollars 

 

MEANING: each letter is 5 dollars 

 

underwear = 9 letters = 9 x 5 = 45 smiley

 

Hope this helps !

An underwear would cost $45 because there are 9 letters in the word underwear, and 5 * 9 = 45.
