The spring compression had 1/2 k x^2 of work done on it. Assuming no losses to friction, then the energy that went into it was mg(h+x). Calculate h

Bob, are we solving for h+x or only h. Because solving for only h gives a wrong answer

h+x is the initial height above the COMPRESSED spring, which is what they ask for

Thanks for the clarification
