Please help me fine and equation for the left half of the circle given by (x+2)+y=9

I 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.

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.

This is the same as you switch x and y, and then find the lower half of the circle.

(x + 2) + y = 9

(x + 2) = 9 - y

x + 2 = -(9 - y)

x = -[2 + (9 - y)]
