    To find the x intercept of the parabola, you have to set a parabola equation. Use standard form equation to fill-in the vertex information from your given point, (h, k). \[y=a(x-h)^2+k\] Plug in the given point in the graph. Once you've done that, substitute the y-intercept coordinate values into the equation and solve for a. After finding a, just plug in (h, k) and a into the standard form equation. Also, to find the x-intercept, just set y = 0 and solve for x from the standard form equation.
