I need help solving the problem not the answer. (Multiple Choice)

The steps below show the incomplete solution to find the value of x for the equation
7x + 8 − 3x = −6 + 10:

Step 1: 7x + 8 − 3x = −6 + 10
Step 2: 7x + 8 − 3x = 4
Step 3: 4x + 8 = 4

Which of these is most likely the next step?

4x = 12 ***
4x = 4
4x = −4
4x = −12

I believe it might be A someone explain please
