maths (it's urgent)

the path of the rocket is represented by the equation y= root under(25-x)^2. the path of a missile designed to intrersect the path of the rocket is represented by the equation x = 3/2 root under (y). the value of x at the point of intersection is 3. what is the corresponding value of y?

sorry but i didn't find the key for root under so just wrote it down.... i hope that makes sense..... please it's due tomorrow. please help!

  1. It does not make sense to me
    the parabola opening to the left
    y^2 = (25-x)^2
    does not hit the parabola
    x^2 = (9/4) y or y = (4/9) x^2
    at x = 3
