07/02/2013 - A Dozen Apples (***)

This puzzle is rated 3 star (hard).


It was the day before Christmas, and a shopkeeper was feeling rather generous, so he said to his assistant:

“Today you may sell these apples for a pound a dozen less than they were. That will mean that customers will get one more apple for a pound.”

What were the old and new prices for a dozen apples?
