Maybe the price itself has a mathematical problem, if you know what I mean.

a 100 bucks does seem kinda steep and that too for Maths

Nah. I once had to spend $250 on a math text. That then they wouldn't buy back.

The most expensive text I had to buy was a $375 philosophy text, which then the professor never referenced, and instead gave xeroxed pages from other texts, but still required us to have on our person.

375 bucks? My god, America is one expensive place to live in.

The most expensive book here can be 50 bucks at max, if its not a set.

Regular prices are 5-20 bucks.

Regular prices are 5-20 bucks.

The average income per-capita in India is $3100. The average in the US is about $28,000.

You can buy 62 $50 books with $3100. You can buy 74 $375 books with $28,000.

The most expensive books are more expensive in India than in the US.
