    Rewrite y = x^2 + 14x + 29 in general form

    Maybe subtract y from both sides so the equation is set = 0.

    If general form is the same as standard form, then usually you would have the variables on one side, and the constant term on the other. Since I am not really sure what "general form" is, I cannot give an exact answer.

    So I would venture to say the general form here is x^2 + 14x - y = -29

    Yeah you are right. I really never see parabolas written in any other way except the way you had it. So now that I think about it, I agree with what you wrote the first time.

    I mean, if the parabola was written in another way, there would be a name for it. Like "vertex form" or "standard form". But "general form"? Probably exactly what you have.

    what about this one though y = 3x^2 - 24x + 10

    I would say that it is already in general form.
