Two men, David and Clifton, and their wives, Kim and Allison, go out shopping for books. Each person paid for each book a number of dollars equal to their number of books. David bought 1 more book than Kim, while Allison bought only 1 book. If each couple spent the same two-digit sum, who is Kim's husband?

OP says: "Each person paid for each book a number of dollars equal to their number of books."

 

Which is meant?

  1. Each person paid for each book bought by that person a number of dollars equal to the number of books bought by that person.
  2. Each person paid for each book bought by that person a number of dollars equal to the number of books they all bought together.
