Your Manoel's Account

Difficulty level:

A boy came into Seu Manoel's bar and ordered a sip, a bag of chips, a soda and a pack of cigarettes.

Manoel takes the pencil from behind his ear, writes the price on a piece of paper and gives it to the boy, who is furious:

"You multiplied the price of the things I bought!" You should add them up!

The bar owner takes back the paper, takes a good look and returns it to the customer, saying:

If I had added the prices, the result would be the same.

The account gave $ 7.11. How much did each item cost?
