Vanna Black pays money for vowels. If consonants are worth nothing and the following words are worth the following amounts, then find the value of each vowel. All vowels are worth the same amount in each but each vowel has a different value.

Audacious=\$260
Equivocation=\$340
Inimitable=\$255
Onomatopoeia=\$435
Unambiguous=\$225

• math -

Let a be the value of "a", e be the value of "e", etc. for i, o, and u.

Audacious has a u a i o u = 260. So 2a+i+o+2u = 260.

Do the same for the other 4 words; you have 5 equations for 5 variables.
