**Deriving the Equation of a Parabola Given a Focus and**

I am having difficulty determining the equation for a parabola when the focus is given, and the directrix is given. For example, Focus at (-2, 2) and directrix y= -2. I believe I use the distance formula, however, the distance formula states you need to points X1, Y1, and X2, Y2.... The vertex of the parabola is halfway between the directrix and the focus. So, the vertex is at (0,4) The parabola opens down. p is the distance (absolute value because distance is always positive) between the focus and the vertex and between the vertex and the directrix.

**Deriving the Equation of a Parabola Given a Focus and**

The vertex of the parabola is halfway between the directrix and the focus. So, the vertex is at (0,4) The parabola opens down. p is the distance (absolute value because distance is always positive) between the focus and the vertex and between the vertex and the directrix.... Find the Equation for the parabola with focus (3,2) and directrix y=6. The focus is a point and the directrix is a line. The parabola has the equation (x - h)Â² = 4p(y - k) where (h,k) is the vertex, p is the distance from the vertex to the focus and also the distance from the vertex to the focus. Lets draw the focus F(3,2). I'll put an "o" there. And I'll draw the directrix y=6 which is a

**Find the equation of the parabola with focus (60) and**

How can you find the vertex of the parabola given the focus and directrix? 2. What can you say about the distance between the parabola and the focus or directrix at the vertex? 3. How does a related to the focus and directrix? Write an equation for each parabola described below. (Vertex Form). Use the following applet to verify your answers.... 1. You know the coordinates of vertex and focus Suppose you know the coordinates of vertex and focus of a parabola. In order to find the equation of its directrix, we will use two properties of the directrix to find its equation:

**How do you find the vertex focus and directrix of parabolas?**

I am having difficulty determining the equation for a parabola when the focus is given, and the directrix is given. For example, Focus at (-2, 2) and directrix y= -2. I believe I use the distance formula, however, the distance formula states you need to points X1, Y1, and X2, Y2.... We are given focus(x, y) and directrix(ax + by + c) of a parabola and we have to find the equation of parabola using its focus and directrix. Examples :

## How To Find Equation Of Parabola With Focus And Directrix

### 11/06/2013Â Â· The vertex form of the equation of a vertical parabola is given by , where (h, k) is the vertex of the parabola and the absolute value of p is the distance from the vertex to the focus, which is also the distance from the vertex to the directrix.

- The vertex of the parabola is halfway between the directrix and the focus. So, the vertex is at (0,4) The parabola opens down. p is the distance (absolute value because distance is always positive) between the focus and the vertex and between the vertex and the directrix.
- for the parabola, x^2+6 x-12 y-51 = 0 find the vertex,focus and the directrix
- Focus â€“ Focus is defined as a fixed point on the interior of a parabola, which is used to define the curve. Directrix of a parabola â€“ The Directrix of a parabola is defined as a â€¦
- Alternatively (and more rigorously), we can just use the directrix and focus we have found to derive the equation of the parabola from the definition. In the case of a directrix of x = -3 and a focus of (1,2), we do indeed find that (y-2)Â² = 8(x+1). (See the attached photo to see this.)
