This is a special case of the affine cipher where $m=26$. Let's encrypt a single letter using your $E$. Let it be m, say, which is at index 12. So, $$E(12) = (7 \cdot 12 + 10) \mod{26} = 16$$ Now if we try to use the $D$ in your question, we decrypt this as: $$D(16) = (7 \cdot 16 - 10) \mod{26} = 24$$ which is obviously not right. The issue is that your ...
