    y = 4(2-z)-3x

    z = 2-\frac{3x+y}{4}

    What do you exactly need solve?

    3x + y = 4(2-z)...Solve for x.


    Subtract y from both sides. By doing so, you will isolate the term 3x.


    3x = 4(2 - z) - y


    We now divide both sides by the coefficient of x, which is the number 3.


    x = [4(2 - z) - y]/3

    By the way, you can use the distributive rule in terms of 4(2 - z) to simplify further if needed.
