[latex]\bf wxy+xyz=wx+yz\implies wxy+xyz-yz=wx\leftarrow \begin{array}{llll} taking\\ common\\ factor \end{array} \\\\\\ y(wx+xz-z)=wx\implies y=\cfrac{wx}{wx+xz-z}[/latex]
I suppose you're not expected to get a constant for "y", since the fact that the other variables are >1 won't give us enough mileage for a constant value for "y".
