Cheaper by the dozen

  1. May 26, 2005 #1
    There's an item in the store, the price of which is 2 for a dollar. 36 can be had for 2 dollars and 475 will cost you 3 dollars. What is the item?

    guess: numbers, the metal ones, for house addresses?

    DarkEternal, of course, is correct. And so, probably, is BicycleTree.

    You know how you can buy the actual numbers to nail up on your house for your address? Let's say each one costs $1.00. Now read what he has up top. The number "2" will cost... $1.00. The numbers "3" and "6" (36) will cost you $2.00. And the numbers "4", "7" and "5" will cost you $3.00.
