A set of $n$ numbers has the sum $s$. Each number of the set is increased by $20$, then multiplied by $5$, and then decreased by $20$. The sum of the numbers in the new set thus obtained is:

$\textbf{(A)}\ s \plus{} 20n\qquad \textbf{(B)}\ 5s \plus{} 80n\qquad \textbf{(C)}\ s\qquad \textbf{(D)}\ 5s\qquad \textbf{(E)}\ 5s \plus{} 4n$ (Error compiling LaTeX. ! Undefined control sequence.)
