    To isolate the variable z, we need to get the 5z term alone on one side of the equation.

    First, we can add 2 to both sides of the equation to get rid of the -2 on the left side:
    5z – 2 + 2 = 13 + 2
    5z = 15

    Now, we can divide both sides by 5 to solve for z:
    5z/5 = 15/5
    z = 3

    Therefore, the solution for z in the equation 5z – 2 = 13 is z = 3.
