    2 graphs

    Sorry for all of these questions, but this is last minute and my teacher can't even get these problems right in class so I am trying to teach myself from a book that is hard to follow.

    How do you graph this parabola:
    x=-3y^2-6y+3

    and how do you graph this circle? I don't think its possible.

    x^2+(y-1)^2+1=0

    It would be a parabola with its axis of symmetry parallel to the x axis.

    Here's a visual for you:

    You're correct. Its not possible.
