Why is this?

It is likely because your system of equations uses the variable x. When you create a system of equations, the app tries to automate the creation of variables when it can, or forces you to create a variable when it cannot. In the latter case, it creates an app variable via:


once you declare the variable name and sets its default value to 0. App variables are specific to only that app. The variable remains until a new system is selected/created in which x is no longer a variable. The app tries to keep track of the usage of x -- if after a while it detects that x has become stale, it will also delete it then using:
