Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0study all the four standard forms and the general forms of parabolae carefully...learn how to evaluate the vertex, latusrectum and directrix and focus and centre

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how to figure out the vertex directrix and focus if they only give me a lil information

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0vertex (2,0) directrix y=4 and i have 2 find the equation and graph it

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now can u teach me how to get that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u c if u have d directrix parallel to xaxis, its a vertical parabola upward or dwnward

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since here d vertex lies above d directrix its an upward parabola

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so do i use (xh)^2=4p(yk)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah bingo...where p is the distance btween d vertex and directrix

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i just know the formula 2 use but idk how 2 use it

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no i dont how did u get the answer wat are the steps wat did u plug in

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u kno d formula...jst remmbr u use dis only when the directrix is parallel to xaxis

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when d directrix is y=something, u use it

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok but wat steps did u take to get the answer i knoow 2 use the fromula but idk how 2 get the answer

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see h and k are the x and y coordinates of the vertex. and p is the distance of the vertex from directrix

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so far all i have is (x2)^2=4py

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0p is 4 the distance of 2,0 from y=4

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04 distance is always positive

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so uve got (x+2)^2 = 4.4(y)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks do you mind helping me wit some more

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0focus (0,0) directrix x=4

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hold on on dat last one was my parabola suppose 2be upward and my directrix was suppose 2 go through it right???

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no ur getting muddled up..the directrix doesnt go thru d parabola

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well when i graphed it it did cuz the y axis is vertical and not horizontial so is my parabola not facing the right way

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no ur parabola shld touch the xaxis, pass thru 2,0 and the directrix should be 4 units below it

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i had it right the 1st time so on to the next one lol

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk lol idc 4real im sick of dis class

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ready 2 help me wit the other 1

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0focus (0,0) directrix x=4

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wat way will the directrix be going

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now 2 figure out the equation do i use (yk)^2=4p(xh)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and is this going 2 be opening to the left

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ur right...u do it quite well..yr u sick of it?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cuz idk how 2 do it im just guessing

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no bt ur guessin right so u shld get confidence

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so wat is the vertex and if i dont have (h,k) do i use x,y

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use 0,0 for h,k..so its y^2=16x

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so anytime i dont have the vertex use 0,0

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0bt ur vertex is given 0,0

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0rly sorry..bt u cn frgv a lovesick man cant u...

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol sure so how do i do it

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0neway so the vertex is the midpt of the focus and the pt where d directrix meets the axis

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need numbers to do the formula

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its d midpt of 0,0 and 4,0

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ur having fun arent u...d midpt of 0,0 and 4,0 is (0+4)/2, 0+0/2

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0vertex is d midpt of the focus and the directrix meeting the axis

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u should be my teacher u making it simple my teacher is making it hard ok so i can always use dat when i am givin the focus and directrix right

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is the answer y^2=8px

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thnx fr d compliment..wt grade r u in?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nahi...replace d x with (x2)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok dis one i did they gave me the center (7,3) and the focus (7,5) i got (x+7)^2=24y is dat right

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now the other problems r harder they gave me just a graph wit the drawing already made so i hope i can explain dis 2 u

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the is (4,3) and the directrix is (7,2.5)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ur doing somthin wrng

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the vertex was the (4,3)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it (x3)^2=4p(y+4)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok the vertex is (2,_6) and they gave me 2.25 wat do i do

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so its (y+6)^2 =  17(x+2)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0distance of 2 from 2.25

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u lost me now i have (y=6)^2=4p(2.25+2)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how u know to do 2.25+2 then to make dat p

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0remmbr its d distance between d vertex and directrix

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now im all lost x=2.25 is the directrix right

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes and x=2 is the vertex so d distance of it from 2.25 is 4.25

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my bad the directrix is x=2.5

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its from 2 to 2.25 so it 2.25  (2) = 4.25

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no if vertex is 2 and the directrix is 2.25 there only 1/4 apart

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if directrix is 2.25 then yes

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the directrix is negative

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so wats the new answer

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0r u good at doing dis wit word problems

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nvm if i get stuck ill post it but thanks 4 all ur help
