Another Math puzzle

Don't google for answer and ruin the fun. It took me under 6 minutes to solve this.

A guy walks in a 7-11 (a chain of neighborhood convenient stores in the US) and picks up a loaf of bread, eggs, butter and milk. He gets to the check-out counter and is as usual greeted by Mr. Patel, who has just migrated from India after completing his PhD in Math.

Mr. Patel - That would be $7.11

Customer - 7.11 he he! what a conincidence, and I see that you beat the cash register.

Mr. Patel - He he. Easy all I needed to do was multipy the prices

Customer (surprized) - What? you multiplied them? you are supposed to add them.

Mr. Patel - Sorry, I was working on some Math problem, but even when I add them, the total is still $7.11

Can you figure the prices of each of the 4 items ?

P1 x P2 x P3 x P4 = 7.11
P1 + P2 + P3 + P4 = 7.11

If it really, really took you 6 mins you must be a x86 masquerading as a human ..........

PS. It took me only a few mouse cliks

Going by simple maths,it is not possible to solve these equations since there are 4 variables and 2 equations.Ya need to have 4 equations to find out 4 variables unless you do hit and trials...
Hit and trials don't count in mathematics....

even if u did that multiplication is x to the power 4 ..

Where is ur multiplicative term ..

Thanks for the compliment but it is easier than you think. Start with factorizing 711. But I know some people prefer searching over solving.
