symmetric difference calculation

I need help with the following (not a hw problem, just reading a book
on prob theory):

Let * be the symmetric difference operation: A * B = (A-B) U (B-A)

solve for X: A * X = B

I can solve it using a venn diagram: X = A * B

But how do I get the solution using set algegra?

Thanks in advance.
