If for any (reasonably small) finite i you are careful to declare all symbols involved, the q's, x's, and y's, as symbolic, indicate which are the unknowns, (q0, q1, ..., qi,) and include all i+1 linear equations, then the 'solve' function of the symbolic toolbox will give you a solution for all the q's including q0.
However, it is not able to obtain a general formula for q0 that holds for all i. That you would have to deduce from such results yourself after doing this for several representative values of i. (There is still a need for us mere mortals in this fastmoving computer world.)
