A man goes into a hardware store and asks the assistant for something. The assistant responds, "Four will cost you $3, ten will cost you $6, and two hundred will cost $9." What is the man buying?

(highlight or select the area between the arrows to see the hidden text)

Clue: -->He is NOT asking for four, ten, or two hundred items. Sixteen thousand and fifty-nine would cost $15...<--

Solution: -->The man was buying house numbers - each digit costs $3... <--
