  1. 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 (x-10) is 15
    The product of 3 and (x-10) = 15
    3(x-10) = 15

    can you see what I did there ?

  2. 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 (x-10)?

  3. 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
    x-10 or 10-x, but they didn't show a 10-x
