Okay, we know A isn't right because it doesn't make sense with the question
I want us to take a look at D.
Some books cost 13 dollars, so it could be 13x . Some books cost 17 dollars also. so it could be 13x + 17y = 128. some of his books are from x and some are y. Since we don't know how many books are from x and y, you would have to input x + y = 8
