So you think the cork is worth 50p, why?

that would be like 9+ 2x =10, where x is the cork's price

The bottle is £9 more than the cork. If the cork is £1 then the botttle is £10 so it’s not £1. If it’s 50p per cork then the bottle is worth £9.50 as your questions says. Meaning both together is £10.

How can there be no clues if he is hanging by a rope with a puddle underneath? I'd say those are clues
