Standard forms of the parabola are
<br>y = x^2/4P parabola opens up
<br>y = -x^2/4P parabola opens down
<br>x = y^2/4p parabola opens right and
<br>x^2= -y^2/4p shows a parabola opens left
<br>For parabolas opening up/down, the directrix is a horizontal line in the form y = + p
<br>For parabolas opening right/left, the directrix is a vertical line in the form x = + p
<br>The vertex point for all of the above is (0,0)
<br>For parabolas opening up/down, the directrix is a horizontal line in the form y = + p. For parabolas ...
