**This Week's Brain Teaser**

A teacher told her students, "I have a bag of lollipops that I bought for $6.25. Can anyone figure out how many are in the bag and how much I paid for each one?" The students looked puzzled and said there's no way anyone could know how many lollipops were in the bag. The teacher said, "The lollipops were all the same price. The number I bought is the same as the number of cents each cost." Can you figure out how much the lollipops cost?
