The (Z) is essentially like (cis) for a molecule where we could not determine if it was cis or trans due to the fact that there are more than two groups off the double bond, so we use E or Z instead (respectively similar to trans or cis). Trick: Z, Zame, Zide (same side :D). If you were unsure about how to draw it, here's what I think it is. Sorry for the poor picture; my drawing skills aren't exactly on par. If you want further explanation about how I drew this, I looked at the fact that it was an alkene, drew heptene keeping in mind where I put the double bond (3), then when I got to the double bond, I made sure I addressed the (Z). Z, Zame, Zide, so similar to (cis). Then I finished the chain and put the methane substituent at the third carbon. Let me know if anything doesn't make sense!
