Answer:

#c = -7#

Explanation:

First, lets walk through what each word/number means. Then we can set up an equation and solve.

  • The word is is synonymous with equals, which is represented in an equation with the equal sign (#=#).

  • In this problem, 10 can stay the way it is. There is nothing more to be done.

  • More is another way to say "in addition" or "plus". We will display this in the equation using a plus sign (#+#).

  • #c# is a variable.

  • 3 can be left alone.

So our equation would look like this:

#10+c=3#

Using basic math, we can solve this.

#c = 3-10#

#c = -7#
