Do you think we have to say explicitly in the question stem that price should be a non-zero value?

Thanks

I've changed the wording to this:

A stationery store sells pens and pencils. If the price of each item is expressed as a non-zero whole number of cents, how much do 5 pencils cost?

Hope this helps others.

Thanks! +1.
