Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good. So which of the following equations is used? (xh)^2 = 4p(yk) or (yk)^2 = 4p(xh) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes it's the first one. If the x is being squared, the it's vertical, and if the y is being squared, it's horizontal. So we have decided that we are going to use (xh)^2 = 4p(yk). All we need to do now is to find the values of h,k, and p yes?
