Well, okay. I have this system of equations, kind of. Rather than looking for a number, though, I'm looking for a function. I'll try to explain myself as best as I can, but I'm not really familiar with the terms I should probably be using.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Basically, x and y are on the left side of this function, and z (and z alone; the idea is to solve for z in terms of x and y, I guess) is on the right side. Basically, I need a formula/formulas that will solve for z in terms of x and y for ALL of these sets of numbers, and if there are multiple formulas, I guess I need to know how many there are so I can find them all.

Once again, sorry if I'm not explaining myself adequately, I'll do what I can to help clear things up if you have questions.

Edit: Okay, I don't think this is a system of equations, but it's kind of like that. I don't know what to call it, so I don't know how to google it and figure out how to solve something like this. How do I solve this?!
