 T O P I C    R E V I E W lynna Posted - 10/16/2007 : 18:56:55 Please help me fine and equation for the left half of the circle given by (x+2)+y=9I foiled the x+2 and solved for x. the answer I got was x= -y-4x-5 but I didn't know if it was ok to still have the x in the answer. 3   L A T E S T    R E P L I E S    (Newest First) skeeter Posted - 10/18/2007 : 08:13:36 quote:Originally posted by DavidSkeeter, isn't that just a translation of the entire circle to the left?If she wants the left half, should there not be boundaries defined?{(x-2) + y^=9; -5<=x<=-2}plot some points using my last equation and see the result for yourself. sahsjing Posted - 10/17/2007 : 16:48:27 This is the same as you switch x and y, and then find the lower half of the circle. skeeter Posted - 10/16/2007 : 19:28:50 (x + 2) + y = 9(x + 2) = 9 - yx + 2 = -(9 - y)x = -[2 + (9 - y)]
