    You can't find the value of p with that information.

    Is this supposed to be x = 4py^2?

    So 4p = 1/4 and p = 1/16?

    I think it's more like: y^2=4px or x^2=4py depending on the orientation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parabola

    Except I think it's supposed to be x^2=4py so I think we have to rearrange it.

    the equation is x+1/4y^2

    So y^2=4x and 4p=4 and p = 1
