Re: Q: solving for 2 variables (beginner)

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.
