    Ok so lets assume he started out with x points.... he lost 10 points seven times means his score x loses 7*10 points... therefore x-70 is his new score... then he losses an additional 100 points which means (x-70)-100 or x-170... therefore the change in his score is the difference between his old and new score x-(x-170)=170

    Now you don't have to algebra up the problem you can simply compute that number, but it might help on problems like these if you are confused as a placeholder while you work out the logic
