Solve an equation of fourth degree with two variables

I have to solve an equation of fourth degree with two variables, and draw the line where it is equal to zero. I tried to do that but I got an error message when I tried to place a value in x1_sol:
syms x y;
v=1/16*(3*x+17*y/3)*(-x^3-6*y^2-11*x+y)+1/96*(34*x+130*y)*/(3*x-y);
x_sol=solve(v==0,x,'MaxDegree', 4);
x1_sol=x_sol(1);
x1_sol(9);
Where am I wrong? Do I use the right way?

i don't know what you are trying with this command x1_sol=x_sol(1); because the size of the x_sol are:
>> size(x_sol)
ans =
1 1
that's because it should be clear why x1_sol(9); give you an error message!
