To make up for the fact that he had forgotten Valentine's Day, Brijesh is shopping in an expensive department store.
At the checkout, the total cost of his purchase is Rs. 5424, giving an average price of Rs. 904 per gift.
As he has only Rs. 5000, he returns one item, increasing the average price to Rs. 965.

Rs, 599

Number of gifts initially --> Rs. 5424/904=6
Money spent --> 965*5=4825
Price of the returned gift --> Rs. 5424- Rs. 4845= Rs. 599

When I went to the store, I purchased four items. The following shows the cost of three of the items:

Rs 1.50
Rs 3.00
Rs 4.00

The line to the checkout was pretty long, so to quench my boredom I started playing with my pocket calculator while waiting.

I found out, to my surprise, that the four prices of the four items I purchased added to the same number as I got when I multiplied the four prices together.

What was the price of the fourth item?
