The product of 3 and the difference of a number and 10 is 15
The product of 3 and the difference of a number and 10 is 15
The product of 3 and (x10) is 15
The product of 3 and (x10) = 15
3(x10) = 15
can you see what I did there ?

I know that when it says 'is' it's suppose to be an equal sign, but the rest is still kind of confusing. How did you know that when it says "the difference of a number and 10" is (x10)?

Difference implies subtraction
sum implies addition
product implies multiplication, and
quotient implies division
so "a number" is an unknows
difference between "the unknown" and 10 could have been
x10 or 10x, but they didn't show a 10x
