Simple Matrix Manipulation Help

I have a 20x20 matrix (A) multiplied by a 20 row by 1 column matrix (B) which is full of unknowns (only two known values), which equals a 20r x 1c matrix (X). My question is how to solve for the unknowns in (B)? Any help would be appreciated.
A = [4224.3 7392.5 -4224.3 7392.5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0;

There is no solution for that.
solve(A*X == B)
Look at entry #11 in B, where you have a 0 where the sequence would otherwise predict a y5. Now look at the 11th output of A*X, which is slightly under 136 million. 136 million-ish can never equal 0, so there cannot be a solution for the system. You have the same problem with the second last entry, where y10 might be expected in B but you have 0: A*X's second-last entry is slightly over 1 million, which can never equal 0.
