Mathematical operations:

Add 10 :

x + 10

Multiply the result by 4 :

( x + 10 ) * 4

Add 200 :

( x + 10 ) * 4 + 200

Divide by 4 :

[ ( x + 10 ) * 4 + 200 ] / 4

Subtract your original number :

[ ( ( x + 10 ) * 4 + 200 ) / 4] - x

Equation is:

[ ( ( x + 10 ) * 4 + 200 ) / 4 ) ] - x =

= ( x + 10 ) * 4 / 4 + 200 / 4 - x =

x + 10 + 50 - x = 60
