A man went to a peculiar shop and enquires about prices. The dialogue between him and the shop owner goes like this:

Man: How much would 50 cost?

Shop-owner: 30 cents.

Man: How much would 5 cost?

Shop-owner: 15 cents.

Then how much would 100 cost and what kind of items are sold/bought?

Assume a normal and fair trade happened during transactions.

The shop-keeper is selling:

Door numbers. Each digit costs 15 cents, so 100 costs 45 cents.
