UTS, with those values for A and B you never enter the loop and therefore no values are assigned to x, which is why it is not defined.
One thing you could do is initialize x and y to zero before the loop.

Right, as I pointed out above, with A = 3000 and B = 2000 you never enter the loop, since 3000 - 2000 > 50. Try for example A = B = 3000. Note, however, that you are neither changing A nor B inside the loop. This means that the loop condition is always satisfied and you're stuck in an endless loop.
