    Pimpin' Word Problems, Numba 2: Design a Pimpstick

    Yo, all playaz know that any real pimp gotz to walk
    around wit a fly pimpstick so ho's be respectin' him,
    right. Say I got $1000 to invest in a brand new,
    custom pimpstick made just how I want it. Now here
    be my choices for what I can put into it.

    I gotz to pick one wood, one type of jewels, one
    word engraved in tha top, and a length.

    Here be tha costs fo' tha wood, and how much respect
    I be gettin' fo' each kind:

    Wood Cost Respect
    ----------------------------
    Oak $40/ft 10 props
    Pine $50/ft 15 props
    Maple $80/ft 25 props



    And tha same fo' tha jewels:

    Jewels Cost Respect
    ---------------------------
    Rubies $400 10 props
    Diamonds $600 14 props


    And fo' tha engravin', each letter cost
    $50 and gets me 20 props.

    Now, two mo' things. Tha pimpstick
    gotta be at least two feet long, and tha
    engravin' gotta have at least two lettaz.

    So, yo, what's tha best pimpin' cane I can build fo' $1000
    so I get tha most props?

    Holla if ya know.

    If you have to have jewels, then I think the best you can do is:

    2ft. pine + Rubies + 10 letters. Cost = $1000. Respect = 240 props.
