Let the number be x,then

8x-10=6x+4

8x-6x=4+10

2x=14

x=14/2

x=7

hence the number is 7

8x-10=6x+4

8x-6x=4+10

2x=14

x=14/2

x=7

hence the number is 7

8 times of the number = 8x

6times of the number + 4 = 6x +4

therefore the equation is,

8x - 10 = 6x +4

8x - 6x = 10 +4

2x = 14

x = 14/2

x=7

so , the number is 7.
