The equation z=x=y gives a line (being the intersection of the planes z=x and x=y; as you probably now, if we denote by t=x=y=z, this line can be described as x=t, y=t, z=t in parametric form)
The second equation describes a plane...but as the first is only a line, the problem does not make sense ...
