So i want to use either the solver or reduce methods to find all the solutions for an equation. I used a for loop to loop through the x values so that the method will return one y value. and I want to save the x and the y values to a list or matrix.
I so far have this:

list1 = {{xval, yval}};
For[x = .5, x <= 50, x = x + .5,
sol = Solve[x^2 + y*x == 16, Reals];
Append[list1, {x, {{y} /. First[sol] /.
Table[{C[1] -> m}, {m, 5}]}}];]

But it just prints "{{xval, yval}}" without appending.
