    there is something weird going on...you are looking for a function of x...but your function is in terms of y...

    yeah, and I don't know how to graph something like that. I have to graph that and g(x) = y^2 and find the area between them. The area is 343/6, but the online submission tells me that my graph is wrong.

    If the function was given as x = y + 12 you could find out that y = x-12 g would be sqrt x = y...

    but is isn't....or can I do it that way, even though it is given in terms of f(x) and g(x)?

    the notation they gave you is bogus so not sure what to try. Really the variables that are used are immaterial - but they should match. What you have been given is jibberish. It basically says given some value for x....y+12 = something. It doesn't matter what x I give you...y + 12 would equal something else.

    okay. I was originally treating the two functions as if they had the variable x in them instead, and the computer gave me an error message. i don't know what to think. Thanks for the help
