Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the vertex is (m,k) and p is the distance to both the focus AND the directrix along the axis of symmetry from the vertex (in opposite direction). (focus is in the same direction as the sign of p)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so given the vertex is at (0,0) and the axis of symmetry is x=0 then: the focus is (0,8) directrix is y = 8
