Uh...we don't get the ham separate. The hog costs $100 to $150 depending on the weight. That includes everything, even the squeal.

Whatever anyone is willing to pay for it after including processing, administrative fees and taxes. The difference is the profit.

Cheddar and Edam are both cheeses.

This isn't a trick question no smile.gif it's one that was set by Mensa ... my son and I spent much of yesterday trying to work out the answer, but got nowhere ... I was hoping somone here had a mind that could understand how to calculate the answer smile.gif

There's not enough information for a "real world" answer, so it has to be a "trick" question. I'll take a HUGE guess and say 7.70.

CHEDDAR £11.00
CHICKEN £ 2.01
EDAM £15.00
SALMON £10.50
HAM £ ?

E D A has a high value

Let's say E's 3
H is 1.2
D is 2
C is 1
R is 2
A.1.8


Than go on and count - it's not correct, but if you try it over ansd over you'll get there sometime soon...

I believe the mark is the mark for the english pound. Just double the number for a close American price.

A pound of ham in my town would go for about 2.5 English pounds or about $5.00 here. Free biscuits included on Sunday tongue.gif

The £ is the symbol for UK sterling currency yes ... but it is irrelevant in this question, it could be a $ just as easily.

I've still not sussed it though sad.gif
