This is the question she posed to me.. I guess I should have just typed it out in the first place sorry not trying to confuse anyone here...

Lisa, went shopping for tiles at the local shop the other day. The tiles were on sale for only 28 dollars each.

However, she got it in her head that, for good luck, the total amount of dollars she must spend must be a number where all of the digits are the same.
