See the entire solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Add $\textcolor{red}{10}$ to each side of the equation to solve for $d$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$14 + \textcolor{red}{10} = d + \left(- 10\right) + \textcolor{red}{10}$

$24 = d + 0$

$d = 24$

$d = 24$

#### Explanation:

$\text{Note that } + \left(- 10\right) = - 10$

$\Rightarrow 14 = d - 10 \leftarrow \text{ is to be solved}$

Isolate d by adding 10 to both sides of the equation.

$14 + 10 = \mathrm{dc} a n c e l \left(- 10\right) \cancel{+ 10}$

$\Rightarrow d = 24 \text{ is the solution}$
