What is the best expression for amount of a change C, received from 1$ bill after buying N articles at 5 cents each ?

Cost of buying N articles at 5 cents each = 5N cents
Money given = $1 = 100 cents
Change received (C) = 100 - 5N cents

IMO B

The cost of 1 article = 5 cents
--> Cost of N articles = 5N cents
1$ = 100 cents

--> Change received = 100 - 5N

Option B

Since the total cost would be 5N cents and $1 = 100 cents, the change C is 100 - 5N cents.

Answer: B
