"Not a problem, sir. Okay, that will be $6098.81"
"Oh no", said Mr Obtuse. "I worked it out at home, before leaving. It wasn't anywhere near that high an amount".
How much money did Mr. Obtuse eventually pay for the tickets (after a lot of explaining)?
- No relationship is mentioned unless both parties are living (e.g. though all males are sons, the 3 sons mentioned each have a father that is on the flight).
- "a pair of twins" means 2 people (one set of twins), not 4.
edit - I added the clarifications and the fact that the mentioned people represent the entire living family
edit - OMG I goofed. I overstated the number of uncles. I have adjusted the question. Instead of 2 uncles, there is only one, and instead of 2 seats, Auntie needs 3. Everything else remains the same. Sorry if this caused anyone an aneurysm.
edit - Again I goofed. I have changed the reference to Mr. Cheap to Mr. Obtuse (though this did not affect the answer).
