## Hardware store in Boston

Fred went to a hardware store in Boston with Alex, Ben, and George. He noted that a hammer cost ten times as much as a screwdriver and a power saw cost ten times as much as a hammer. The storekeeper said that Ben could buy a power saw, George could buy a screwdriver and Alex could buy a hammer. Based on this what would the storekeeper let Fred buy? Alex's full name is Alexander and Ben's full name is Benjamin. George was Alex's boss and good friend.
Fred could buy all three (the power saw, hammer and screw driver) since he had \$111 with him (a \$1 bill - George Washington, a \$10 Alexander Hamilton, and a \$100 bill - Ben Franklin). Boston is in the USA and therefore uses the US currency I just described.
