Answer:

His daughter is 11 years old.

Explanation:

Let's let #d# be the age of Antonio's daughter.

"seven less than four times" is #4d - 7# and we know that Antonio is #37#, so we can make an equation and solve:

#37 = 4d - 7#

Add #color(blue)7# to both sides:
#37 quadcolor(blue)(+quad7) = 4d - 7 quadcolor(blue)(+quad7)#

#44 = 4d#

Divide both sides by #color(blue)4#:
#44/color(blue)4 = (4d)/color(blue)4#

#11 = d#

Therefore,
#d = 11#

His daughter is 11 years old.
