(x-3)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 1(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

With some rearranging I get

y(y-4) = -x^2+6x-13

Is it possible to define this explicitly in terms of y? It looks like a mathematical impossibility to define it explicitly in terms of y but I am hoping there might be some analytical technique for this.
