16x+30x=241+m
m=?

when x=6, 46*6=276
276=241+m
m=35

Should be 35. OA?

Let num of packs = x
16x + 30 x = 241 + some additional cards
46x = 241 + some additional cards

Divide 241/46 => remainder is 11 cards
These 11 cards should constitute atleast 1 extra pack for both regular and deluxe editions.
hence additional cards needed = 30 + 16 - 11 = 35.

A quick approach is as follows.

Knock out E right away, since E is odd, and an odd cannot be a sum of two even numbers.

Now since since the total should be the sum of same multiple of 16 and 30, we know it can't be greater than 8
then make this quick table:
x 16 30 Total
5 80 150 230
6 96 180 276 = 241 + 35
