0x001: Man vs. Machine

I was posed the question
With the preposition of y > z < x > 1
 Solve for x where zx + x = y

Naturally, as maths would in simple terms dictate the answer:
x = y/z+1

Computers on the other hand would go through the convoluted length of controlling hyperbolic paraboloids as:
   [memory] int / ( [+increment] [(pointer to mem)] )   
x = [1 / z] * y / (1 + [(1/z)])

I only question it?

I welcome feedback, conjecture and teachings; just a neophyte lost without structure.
