# Weird Equation

Calculus Level 3

$\large {e}^{y}+y(x-2)=x^{2}-8$

The equation above defines $$y$$ implicitly as a function of $$x$$ near the point $$(3,0)$$. Estimate the value of $$y$$ when $$x=2.98$$. Given the answer in 2 decimal places.


Clarification: $$e \approx 2.71828$$ denotes the Euler's number.
