The elephant on the blog


Chulak charges money for people to write slogans on the White Elephant. Every letter of the alphabet, costs a different amount. The amount goes up 3 Rupees with every letter. For example: A = 1 Rupee, B = 4 Rupees, C= 7 Rupees, D = 10 Rupees, E = 13 Rupees, F = 16 Rupees and so on. 

The following four slogans were written on the side of the elephant:

Chang loves Lotus Blossom
Eat at the Golden Lantern 
Bangkok Wanderers for the Cup
Star of India Tandoori House 

Which is the most expensive slogan? 
Which slogan does Chulak make the least amount of money? 
Explain how you worked out your answer. 
Your challenge is to come up with your own slogan that costs under 1,000 Rupees. 
Then make up your own rule.

  10. The z is the most expensive because all the others ones are lower than z and z cost 76 rupees . the least is a because a cost one rupee and b does not cost 2 its gonna cost 4 . now i think it said i need to make my own so this is my own rule. my rule is that i think a should be 12 pound beacause its unfair that a living animal is getting writen on and puttting this thing up if without goverment or police supervision but i feel theyll have to pay the security and me so they will be paying 24 pound just to draw on a elephant . how cheap [sarcasim]

    2. Super work David, you tried to work out all the slogans. Nearly there! Check my comments below, they should help you finally crack the puzzle.

      Loves is wrong in the first slogan.
      Lantern is wrong in the second and you have added the total incorrectly.
      Wanderers is wrong in the third.
      All your words are correct in the last slogan, but you have added the numbers incorrectly.
