The firts step to solving this problem would be to group like terms which is the same as C: Collect like terms so it's not C. It's also not D because that is also kind of the same thing because we only collected the terms on on side. We also have to isolate the variable. 

7x+15-15=24+4x-15

7x=4x+9

7x-4x=4x+9-4x

3x=9

Divide by 3 on both sides

x=3

The only thing we didn't do was use distrubituve property. So the answer is A
