RIDDLE - Hardware store
in Boston


        Fred went to a hardware store in Boston with Alex, Ben, and George. He noted that a hammer cost ten times as much as a screwdriver and a power saw cost ten times as much as a hammer. The storekeeper said that Ben could buy a power saw, George could buy a screwdriver and Alex could buy a hammer. Based on this what would the storekeeper let Fred buy?

HINT: Alex's full name is Alexander and Ben's full name is Benjamin. George was Alex's boss and good friend.
