A parabola has a Vertex V = (6,4) and a Focus F = (6,-1). What is the equation?...
1 Answer | add yours
The vertex of the parabola is at (6, 4) and the focus is at (6, -1).
This is a parabola that opens downwards. The focus is 5 units below the vertex. This gives p = -5 or 4p = -20
The equation of the parabola in the required form is : (x - 6)^2 = -20*(y - 4)
