```Gunnar,

There is a slight problem, regardless of whether the equations are valid
or not.  Assuming that one only knows Ix and Iy and A, then you
essentially will have one equation to solve two unknowns (Iz and Iw).  :-)

The second equation does help Joe as the AISC manual does provide rz.  So,
using that second equation, he can now determine Iz.

Regards,

Scott
