Surely you need more in order to get a proper solution. But the idea would be something like In[1]:= Solve[3x + 4 - Im == 10 + (2 + y) Im, {x, y}] Solve::"svars": "Equations may not give solutions for all \"solve\" \ variables." Out[1]= {{x -> (2 + Im) + Im y/3}} (where Im stands for imaginary i). As you would expect, this simple expresses x in terms of y.
