The steps below show the incomplete solution to find the value of x for the equation 7x + 8 − 3x = −6 + 10: Step 1: 7x + 8 − 3x = −6 + 10 Step 2: 7x + 8 − 3x = 4 Step 3: 4x + 8 = 4 Which of these is most likely the next step? 4x = 12 4x = 4 4x = −4 4x = −12

    you have \[4x + 8 = 4\] and you need to make x by itself so what will you do for both sides?

    It is logic you have +8 so subtract 8 from each side to get 4x only on one side
