    I would say D. You don't know how much he had. You do know he added 25.50. You also know that the total amount of money he has is 275.00. So I say B. :)

    n = original balance he deposits 25.50...so he adds 25.50 ending up with 275.00 .....so it equals 275 n + 25.50 = 275.....or 25.50 + n = 275
