i got that question on one of the ARCO gmat tests and couldnt figure it out for the life of me. i was solving it the same way as everyone else too. now I feel a lot better about that one. you can try and back solve it and it won't come out either.

Answer C would be 235(6) + 465(3)= 2805
Answer D wont work bc you cant get a difference of 3 b/w the 2
9+3=12 (difference is 6)
8+4=12 (difference is 4)
7+5=12 (difference is 2)
Answer E would be 235(8)+465(5)=4205
