Iteration and Circular Reference

If you can't live without circular references, just turn on the iteration.

cell A + cell B = cell C
cell B = cell C - cell A

In Excel, cell B and cell C are the sources of circular references.
However, to make the calculation work as is, the iteration must be set on as the image below. (Tools>Options)

Then, we all can live with circular references.
