The key to solving multi-step word problems is to read the questions very carefully.
There were 20 people on the bus. 10 got off at the first stop and 7 got on.
At the second stop, 10 people got off but nobody got on. How many people are on the bus?
How to solve it:
20 people on the bus - 10 get off at the first stop = 10 people on the bus
10 + 7 people that get on = 17 people
17 people - 10 = 7
The answer is 7 people.
