Best Answer

You cannot, in general, solve one equation with two unknown variables.

x - y = x - x2

Subtract x from both sides: - y = - x2

Change signs: y = x2

And that is as far as you can go.

X2 plus 6x-16 equals?

Equals anything... x is a variable. If that equation was set equal to zero then you could solve for x, but that is not what you have asked.

If 3x-1 equals 11 what is the value of x2 equals x?

If 3x - 1 = 11: To solve this equation, add 1 to each side of the equation to isolate x (3x -1 +1 = 11 + 1) and now the equation is 3x = 12. The next step is to divide both sides of the equation by 3 to find the value of x (3x / 3 = 12 / 3) for the answer x = 4. Not sure what you mean by x2 x, but you can substitute the value of x (which is 4) to solve.
