    Answer:

    The unknown number is -3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Represent unknown as x

    Write as an equation

    12 + (x * 5) = -3

    Multiply

    12 + 5x = -3

    Subtract -5x from both sides of the equation

    12 = -3 – 5x

    Add 3 to both sides of the equation

    15 = -5x

    Divide both sides by -5

    x = -3

    The unknown number is -3
