So d
its D
D is good
always try to think in algebraic way. when the say the number (not saying what is ) give it a name x or whatever letter denoting that it is what we are looking for so we have in this case two number if said the small number is x and we know the greater is 5 more than the small we are essentially saying x+5 and the sum of the two x+(x+5)=77
it is a matter of reading and translating the meaning of a words within the problem
