Subtraction.

Step-by-step explanation:

We have been given an expression: $7x+3x+4=24$.

Simplify our given expression:

$(7+3)x+4=24$

$10x+4=24$

Subtract 4 from both sides of equation:

$10x+4-4=24-4$

$10x=20$

Divide both sides of equation by 10:

$\frac{10x}{10}=\frac{20}{10}$

$x=2$

Therefore, the missing reason for the shown argument is subtraction.

We go from 10x+20 = 50 to 10x = 30 after we subtract 20 from both sides. So we use the subtraction property (of equality).

Choice D

I think it is A or B Hope this helps

9. fordkenae says:

The answer is C.Subtraction im a math teacher so if right mark brainliest

Step-by-step explanation:

10. omar1511 says:

D because 20 was taken to the other side and was subtracted from 50 which makes 30
