In this blog describing variational inference under the section KL divergence and ELBO

they mention that in the equation

$$p(x) = \frac{w(x)}{Z}$$

we can substitute $w$ and $Z$ with:

$$Z = p(x;\theta)$$ $$w = p(x,z;\theta)$$

However that would imply (after substitution) that:

$$ p(x) = \frac{p(x,z;\theta)}{p(x;\theta)} $$

which does not look correct. However I think I am missing something. Can anyone shed some light on this?
