4. mathmale

Jennifer: Please post your question immediately. Otherwise you're going to generate senseless conversations like the one we have here.

5. jenniferjuice

Im sorry guyss!!!! here it is :

6. mathmale

Would this parabola be vertical or horizontal? How would you know that?

7. jenniferjuice

how do i know if its vertical or horizontal ? i forgott

8. mathmale

What is the distance between the focus and the directrix?

9. ganeshie8

yes earlier question was easy as we working it by eliminating options, this one requires full work !

10. mathmale

Instead of saying, "how do i know if its vertical or horizontal ? i forgott," please say, "Just a moment; I'll look that up on the Internet."

11. mathmale

Please let Jennifer answer the question. Everything else is spam or close to it.

13. jenniferjuice

how do i graph it to see the parabola ?

14. Future_UsArmy_MP

*raises hand* @mathmale can i help the user? answer that question? c:

15. mathmale

Review the original problem. This problem statement presents the location of the focus and the equation of the directrix. I invite you to sketch them. Use the Draw utility, below. Future: by all means, go right ahead.

thanks :)

17. Future_UsArmy_MP

ok first thing tbh i cant graph things in my head so i look up graph paper with 4 quadrants here you go: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks3/maths/images/coordinates15.gif

18. Future_UsArmy_MP

ignore the little orange dot on the bottom on coordinates (2,-8)

19. Future_UsArmy_MP

so lets look for (-2, 4)

20. Future_UsArmy_MP

ok so what have we always learned in school when looking for coordinates?

21. Future_UsArmy_MP

do we go up first or straight towards the right?

22. jenniferjuice

up?

23. Future_UsArmy_MP

ok think of it like this c: a Plane doesn't just lift up at first it starts gaining speed meaning it goes straight towards the right or left in this case

24. Future_UsArmy_MP

so you look for -2

25. Future_UsArmy_MP

and think about what we just said the air plane gains speed

26. jenniferjuice

27. jenniferjuice

do i graph it like that ?
