The 5th graders are studying angles.  Their challenge is to find a 5-letter word that has the highest value when you use the following key:

acute angles are worth 6 cents

obtuse angles are worth 8 cents

right angles are worth 5 cents

vertical lines are worth 3 cents

horizontal lines are worth 4 cents

The students must use the alphabet as printed on the handout they received in school today.
