$${z}−\mathrm{3}{zi}\:=\:{a}\:+\:\mathrm{4}{i} \\$$$$\Rightarrow\:{z}\:=\:\frac{{a}\:+\:\mathrm{4}{i}}{\mathrm{1}−\mathrm{3}{i}} \\$$$$\Rightarrow\:{z}\:=\:\frac{\left({a}\:+\:\mathrm{4}{i}\right)\left(\mathrm{1}\:+\:\mathrm{3}{i}\right)}{\left(\mathrm{1}\:+\:\mathrm{3}{i}\right)\left(\mathrm{1}−\mathrm{3}{i}\right)}\:=\:\frac{{a}\:+\:\mathrm{3}{ai}\:+\:\mathrm{4}{i}−\mathrm{12}}{\mathrm{10}} \\$$$$\Rightarrow\:\:{z}\:=\:\frac{{a}−\mathrm{12}}{\mathrm{10}}\:+\:\frac{\mathrm{3}{a}\:+\:\mathrm{4}}{\mathrm{10}}{i} \\$$$$\mathrm{If}\:{z}\:\mathrm{is}\:\mathrm{purely}\:\mathrm{imaginary},\:\mathrm{then}\:{Re}\left({z}\right)\:=\:\mathrm{0} \\$$$$\Rightarrow\:\:\frac{{a}−\mathrm{12}}{\mathrm{10}}\:=\:\mathrm{0}\:\:\Leftrightarrow\:\:{a}\:=\:\mathrm{12} \\$$
