    Let the 'number' be = x Four times the sum of a number and six = 4 * (x + 6) Difference of 10 and 3 times the number = 3*x - 10 Can you solve the equation now?

    4(x+6)=3(x-10) 4x+24=3x-30 Then I subtracted 3x from both sides and got x (4x-3x) then subtracted 24 from both sides so -30-24 so I got x =-54

    Look at your equations and my equations. \[HINT: ~~3x- 10 ~\neq ~3(x-10)\]
