Help me please I get confused with the positives and negatives. Please be kind to check my work and let me know where am I going wrong
4x + 10 = 58
4x + 10 10 = 58 10 (is it  or +10?)
4x = 48 or 68 (do i add 58&10 or sub?)
4x/4 = 48/4 or 68/4 (is the 4 or+)
x=12 or x=68
These are my confusions. Please help me. Thank you very much

4x=48 you subtracted 10 from each side.
x=12 you divided both sides by 4
You have to do the same thing to both sides.
