A movie theater rewards its loyal customers by offering them discounts on the ticket price. For the first 10 movies that a person watches in the movie theater, the ticket price is $50 per movie. For each subsequent set of 10 movies, the ticket price reduces by $5 per movie till the point where the ticket price equals $25 per movie. The person then gets a lifetime discount and can watch all subsequent movies at a ticket price of $25 per movie. If John watched 95 movies in this movie theater last year, then the dollar amount that he paid for the tickets of the 95 movies is equivalent to which of the following?

A. 200*10 + 35*25
B. 60*25 + 45 * 35
C. 225*10+(30+5)(30-5)
D. 225*10+(40+5)(30-5)
E. 225*10+(40+5)(40-5)
