I'm interpreting your question as solve for "y" in y/(x-5) = x-11.
 
Solve as follows:
1. Multiply both sides of the equation by the denominator of the left-side >>> y = (x-11)*(x-5)
2. Factor >>> y = x^2 - 5*x - 11*x + 5*11 = x^2 - 16x + 55

? = (x-5)*(x-11) 
   = x^2  - x*11  - 5 * x  + -5*-11
   = x*2  -16*x + 55
