Q1-find the vertex focus, and directrix of the parabolas =
Ans: 1-x2= 2(x+y) = 2x + 2y
Or x2 + 2x - 1= -2y
Or x2 + 2x + 1 - 2 = -2y
Or (x+1)2 = 2 - 2y = -4*0.5(y-1)
Or X2 = -4aY, where X = x+1, Y = y-1, a = 0.5
This is a parabola which opnes downwards with the vertex at (-1, 1).
The focus is at (0, -a) = (0, -0.5)
The directrix is y = a, or y = 0.5.

2-Write an equation of the vertical parabola that contains (-1,2) with focus (3,1) and which opens upward.
Ans: Since the parabola opens upwards, x should be squared and y should be linear.
If the equation of the parabola is of the type X2 = 4aY, then
Focus : X = 0, Y = a
Vertex: X = 0, Y = 0
Let X = x-h, Y = y-k, where the vertex is at (h, ...
