Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer "am I worth dying for?" - Eleanor Roosevelt

Here's the explanation:

cheddar:

C = 100
D = 500
D = 500
_______
1100 equals 11.00

chicken:

C = 100
I = 1
C = 100
_______
201 equals 2.01

edam:

D = 500
M = 1000
________
1500 equals 15.00

salmon:

L = 50
M = 1000
________
1050 equals 10.50

ham:

M = 1000
________
1000 equals 10.00

Fortunately it is in current currency. It would have been more complicated in the old currency. Where there was 12 pence to a shilling and 20 shillings to a pound. Therefore, 240 pence to a pound. A substantial difference. Such is the difference between base 10 and base 12 numeral systems.

Haha! I was going to say $18.99

there must be some kind of graduational guestioning to come to that conclusion of counting Roman numerical values in each word.

Otherwise who could have known?
