Heres the problem:

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?

One pattern that I see is the number of letters in the toy name. The pattern is not absolutely linear. But regardless, the more expensive the toy the longer the name.

Thank you economyst! Well I figured out it's actually the amount of syllables (10)! (doll, toy-train, crad-le, jump-ing-jack, tick-le-me-elmo, drum)
