Answer:

#5+ z/7=12#

Explanation:

More than is equivalent to a plus sign(indicating addition), quotient is the equivalent to division, and equals is telling you that this is the resultant, thus it is an equal sign.
Thus the expression will be #5+z/7=12#

Answer:

#5 + z/7 = 12#

Here's how I did it:

Explanation:

Let's split this sentence up:
"Five more than" refers to adding something by #5#.

"The quotient of z divided by seven" refers to #z/7#.

Finally, "equals 12" refers to setting everything above equal to #12#.

Combining everything above, we get:
#5 + z/7 = 12#

Hope this helps!
