    A local florist sets prices for the flowers in her shop based on her own logic. A rose costs $0.16, a nasturtium $0.42, and a jonquil is $0.29. Using the same logic, how much will a tulip cost?

    I bet the Jonquil's are in promotion. If they had costed $0.38 instead, I would have given $0.26 for a tulip.

    Back to study, I suppose

    Would a tulip cost $.21? I'm thinking that vowels cost 3 cents and consonants cost 5 cents.

    For what it's worth, I would agree with bbarr, although there may be innumerable other rules for pricing flowers.
