Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(62)/2=4/2=2 => 2+2=4 => vertex is (5,4) b will be the distance between the vertex and the directrix or focus. dw:1443885604489:dw (x−h)^2=4b(y−k) ((h,k) is vertex ) b=2 (h,k)=(5,4) Plug and get this equation: (x−5)^2=8(y−4) now simplify this equation and find your answer
