You know the molar mass of the Br2 ( by calculation from the periodic table). And you know the relative proportions of Br2 and Z in the compound.
The RAM of Z must be mass Br2 x 2.07 / (3.67-2.07)

Basically you have an algebra question with very little chemical knowledge required.
Chemically you only need to understabd the formula, and that you can get the mass of Br from the periodic table.
