    its going to be all variables

    so on the left side of the equation, try an isolate z

    xyz-z=x+y z(xy-1)=x+y z=(x+y)/(xy-1)

    The first step would be to get all the terms with z in them on one side of the equation, and all other terms on the other side then factor out z from the terms. divide to isolate the z

    you can divide the left side by x and y to get z alone

    moving all the terms that contain z to one side of the equation is always a good first step.
