I'm not sure what the curve of x=-(sqrt(1-(y-1)^2)) would look like....anyone know??

oh ok, so i think it would be a circle of radius one centered about (0,1) ??

Would that mean that it is reflected in the x-axis giving a circle of radius one centered at (0,-1)

When you take conics and apply a square root, the result is a split in the graph. In your problem x is always going to be negative so I believe this implies that it is the circle you first mentioned, cut in half vertically, and the left side of the half circle.
