If the equations are badly non-linear, it probably can't. If it can be done at all, methods will depend on the function f; details are everything.

You can try this, however:

Solve[x == f[a,b,c,d],{a,b,c,d}]

There are also other options such as Reduce, SolveAlways, and FindInstance.

Once you've solved for x, of course y == z == w == x.
