Function doesn't let you enter y in symbolic view. Advanced Graphing doesn't have the function tools that function has. Geometry doesn't either.

Sorry for the basic question, but thanks for the help!

Use the Function app for actual functions (i.e. ones that can be defined in the form f(x)=blah). For everything else, use the Advanced Graphing function.

In your case, since you want to use the tools that Function has, then you would probably need to convert 4X^2+Y^2=1 into two parts: Y=SQRT(1-4X^2) and Y=-SQRT(1-4X^2). The equation, in its original form, does not actually define a function.
