$12$

#### Explanation:

Let say the number is $x$

form the equation,
$\left(\left(x - 5\right) \cdot 4\right) + 7 = 35$

reduce $7$ to both of sides
$\left(\left(x - 5\right) \cdot 4\right) + 7 - 7 = 35 - 7$

divide $4$ to both sides
$\left(x - 5\right) \cdot \frac{4}{4} = \frac{28}{4}$

add $5$ to both sides
$x - 5 + 5 = 7 + 5$

$x = 12$
