'z' is just an unknown to solve for ...it could be 'x'

 

-8x + 12 = -12        subtract 12 from both sides

-8x = -24                divide both sides by -8

x = 3     (or z = 3)

-8z + 12= - 12

-8z= -12-12

-8z= -24

 

Because both are negative, we can just take them as positive

 

8z=24

z= 24/8

z=3

 

Hope that helps :)

subtract 12 from both sides and divide both sides by -8 to get z=3
