We can solve for different cases of z..
\(||z - 30| - 43| = 6^2=36\)
Case I : |z-30|-43=36, that is |z-30|=79
Again two cases
A) z-30=79 or z=109
B) 30-z=79 or z=-49
Case II : 43-|z-30|=36, that is |z-30|=7
Again two cases
A) z-30=7 or z=37
B) 30-z=7 or z=23

So, four possible values of z are
109=7*15+4,
-49=7*(-7)+0,
37=7*5+2 and
23=7*3+2

Thus, the values are 0, 2 and 4
