To solve the equation (17 - \frac{s}{4} = -10), follow these steps:

- Add (10) to both sides: (17 - \frac{s}{4} + 10 = -10 + 10)
- Simplify: (27 - \frac{s}{4} = 0)
- Add (\frac{s}{4}) to both sides: (27 - \frac{s}{4} + \frac{s}{4} = 0 + \frac{s}{4})
- Simplify: (27 = \frac{s}{4})
- Multiply both sides by (4): (27 \times 4 = \frac{s}{4} \times 4)
- Simplify: (108 = s)

Therefore, the solution to the equation is (s = 108).
