That was an example... maybe one that is too simple to show what I'm
trying to do.

Let's say we want to solve for x and y, and if we randomly generate A,
B, C, D, E, and F, then

xA + yB = C
xD + yE = F

how can we find x and y using an algorithm that we don't have to cut and
paste into each and every problem..  that's where I was trying to go
with that.. haha

Frankly, I would do this the other way around - much less computing  

Determine x and y randomly. Then make your equations.
