# Sam Loyds Laundry Puzzle

## The Puzzle:

Charlie and Freddie, having sent their lingerie consisting of thirty pieces to the wash, Freddie calls for the same and explains that as his bundle contains half of the cuffs and but one-third of the collars, it should cost but twenty-seven cents.

As four cuffs cost the same as five collars, the laundryman wants to know how much he must charge Charlie for the other package.
