$x = - \frac{13}{20}$

#### Explanation:

$- \left(- \frac{3}{4}\right) = \frac{3}{4}$

because the minus outside the parentheses means to change the minus in the parentheses into a plus.

$x + \frac{3}{4} = \frac{1}{10}$

Subtract $\frac{3}{4}$ from each side of the equation.

$x = \frac{1}{10} - \frac{3}{4}$

$x = \frac{2 - 15}{20}$

$x = - \frac{13}{20}$
