Greg’s ready to buy his first house and has spent the past few weeks looking at houses. So far, he’s found five that he likes. They’re all within his price range and have about what he’s looking for, mostly some land and a moderate-sized house. Coincidentally, all of the houses that he likes are different styles. Determine the street address of each house, the asking price for each house, the size of each lot, the number of rooms each house has, and each type of house.
1. The house on 5th Avenue wasn’t the farmhouse but it did have 9 rooms. The house that was $193,000 had two more rooms than the ranch but neither house had a lot that was 32,000 square feet.
2. The house on Oakland Road was a colonial house but it wasn’t $189,000. The house that was $177,000 had 12 rooms but it wasn’t the house on Elliot Circle. The house on Forest Drive wasn’t a bungalow.
3. The cheapest house, which was $174,000, was on the smallest lot, which was 16,000 square feet but it wasn’t on Oakland Road.
4. The house that had 12 rooms wasn’t a garrison. The house on High Street had 8 rooms.
5. The five houses were the house on Elliot Circle, the house priced at $186,000, the house with a lot size of 21,000 square feet, the house with ten rooms, and the ranch.
6. The farmhouse had a lot size of 24,000 square feet but it was also two rooms bigger than the $189,000 house. The ranch is not on High Street but it is on a lot size of 35,000 square feet.
