All of these are straight formula vertex (-b/2a, (4ac-b^2)/(4a)

u losing me

First you have to solve for y

This is your go-by:\[y=ax ^{2}+bx=c\]That is how you determine what a and b is in above formula. The formula in the previous post represent (h,k) the vertex. Sorry for all the alphabet soup. Don't get lost, stay with me.

y didnt u use (x-h)^2=4p(y-k)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i know the answer to the problem i just dont understand how they got it
anonymous
  • anonymous
the answer is (0,0) focus is (0,-2) and the directrix is y=2 so how they get that
anonymous
  • anonymous
That is a valid method. If you don't understand that one. Try the one I posted above. It looks simpler to me.
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do i do the above one when i have no a and b
anonymous
  • anonymous
This is how you do it. I'll walk you through it. First solve for y. Put it in the form y=
anonymous
  • anonymous
i got -x^2/8=y
anonymous
  • anonymous
OK, from the formula, write your a, b, c
anonymous
  • anonymous
u lost me how do i do that to me they not relating im real smart but sometimes u gotta talk 2 me like im slow
anonymous
  • anonymous
I miswrote it the first time\[y=ax ^{2}+bx+c\]Your equation is\[y=(-1/8)x ^{2}+0x+0\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so thats used 2 find what
anonymous
  • anonymous
First post message
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so is b and c the vertex points
anonymous
  • anonymous
You choose your a, b, c. a=-1/8, b=0, c=0. Put it in the formula {(-0/2(-1), [4(-1)(0)-0^2]/[4(-1)]} which is (0,0). (h,k) is (0,0)
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so the long w u find the vertex and u use the other one to help find wast goes in the 1st formula correct???
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm sorry. I didn't get that.
anonymous
  • anonymous
the formula u wrote at the very 1st post is that the one i need to get the vertex but i formula to get the numbers that go in the first formula
anonymous
  • anonymous
dat made no sense lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok both formulas u gave me is that how i get the vertext??
anonymous
  • anonymous
The vertex is two numbers (0,0) So the formula represent the two numbers.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont understand how you did that 1 st formula its 2 much going on wit all th () and {} [] like no how r u doing dat the vertex is (0,0) now explain to me where in the formula i get dat from cuz trying to solve that formula looks impossible
anonymous
  • anonymous
That is from the first formula, the first message in the post, but if you look at it long enough, you would notice your b=0, c=0, so quickly everything else ends up 0.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i said dat like 7 post ago ur b and c is ur h and k which is he vertex right??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well not exactly. It just so happened that the zeros dominated, you could very well have a=1, b=2, c=3. That doesn't mean h=2, k=3
anonymous
  • anonymous
uggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ok how do u get the focus point
anonymous
  • anonymous
This might help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJf9shWlMz0
anonymous
  • anonymous
not helping
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok can u start fresh with me step by step??
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm not up on all that. I just had that vertex info handy in a book I have around the house. Hang out at you Math lab at school.
anonymous
  • anonymous
not bout 2 happen ill just give up but thanks
