    $\begingroup$ It appears that SteveV's answer below is likely the intended answer, but as JonMark Perry has demonstrated below, several different answers are possible. On Puzzling.SE, we require puzzles to have one verifiably correct answer. If several different potential answers all fit the problem as stated, then it is considered "too broad" and is not a good fit for this site. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Mar 12 at 17:08

    $\begingroup$ I think @GentlePurpleRain's explanation is why you'd be seeing downvotes. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Mar 12 at 17:39

It would cost

30 cents

Because the cost appears to be

15 cents per vowel in their name. Since Mango has 2 vowels, 30 cents total.

45 cent. Each run of a consonant counts 15 cent.

    $\begingroup$ @SteveV; no it doesn't - the pp counts as one run of a consonant, hence only gets 15cents. $\endgroup$ – JMP Mar 12 at 17:13
