Then we have $$2(5d - 4) + m = 232$$ or $$m = 240 – 10d = 10(24-d)$$. Since $$m$$ is a multiple of $$10$$, we have $$m = 10$$. (Note that $$m$$ cannot be $$20, 30$$, etc. because there are only $$12$$ months in a year.) Then we have $$10d = 240 – m, 10d = 240 – 10, 10d = 230$$ or $$d = 23$$. Thus, Annie’s birthday is Oct. 23rd. Therefore, E is the answer.
