|Last Wednesday, going north on Bell Avenue, the Lunch-on-the-Go van stopped
consecutively at 1st through 5th Streets. At each stop, one of the van's
regular customers bought a different lunch item, with one ordering a Caesar

stop, while Ruland's choice cost him $.50 more than the hamburger cost
- At three consecutive stops first-to-last, Kevin bought his meal from the
van, the person who spent the second-most money purchased lunch, and the

the least for lunch.

- Ian's meal cost $1.00 more than that of the Charter Accountants employee,
who spent $.50 more than the person who made the purchase on 4th Street.
