The path of a comet is a parabola described by this equation, where the Sun is at the focus of the parabolic path. The coordinates of the Sun are (96, ?). (Enter only the number for the y-coordinate, with the appropriate sign.) equation is : y = 1/532(x-96)^2
Since you have the coordinates in (x,y) form => (96,y), you know 96=x With the equation that you have you're relating the two variables x and y, so if you have one, you can solve for the other. Just plug in your x-value, in this case x=96, and solve for y!
