first off ill just tell you that the answer is (B) if you want to know why keep reading...

just look at (A) it says that a random amount of 2 page resumes is printed, then it says that the same random amount of 3 page resumes is added to that amount, and lastly he only has 1 one page resume that he then adds to those resumes. you are then left with the total amount of resumes printed out. and if you were to look at (B) you would notice that if you distribute the d into the equation it would not be the same as (A).

(C)(D) and (E) are just different ways of writing it out. But still portray the same equation.

The answer is B. He only printed one resume that was one page long, not d resumes.
