Winchester's local toy store sells items according to its own pricing system. A doll costs $10, a toy train costs $20, a cradle costs $20, a jumping jack costs $30, and a Tickle Me Elmo costs $50. Using the same system, how much does a drum cost?

I know the answer is $10,but I HAVE to explain why. Any patterns you see?
