a parabola has the expression: y^2 = 4ax ....or some similar topology to it..

if we rearrange your expression we get: (1/2)x = y^2 which gets us looking close to normal again

4a = 1/2 a = 1/8 ; the distance from the vertex to the directix os 1/8 ; and the distance from the vertex to the focus is 1/8

the parabola opens to the left, and it is centered onthe xaxis; so.... vertex = (0,0) focus = (0,1/8) and directix is the line x= -1/8
