    Ok so first your main goal is to get s by itself

    First- I would add s to both sides -s+4=7s-3 4=8s-3

    like I said your ultimate goal is to get s by itself. first you have to get you s's on one side of the = sign and your other numbers on the other side So I said.... -s+4=7s-3 what is the easiest way to combine the -s and the 7s?
