**If p > 0, the parabola opens up. **

The equation of a parabola with vertex (0, 0) and focus on the y-axis is x2 = 4py. The coordinates of the focus are (0, p). The equation of the directrix is y = -p. If p > 0, the parabola opens up. If p < 0, the parabola opens down.

**Standard equation of a PARABOLA**

The equation of a parabola with vertex (0, 0) and focus on the x-axis is y2 = 4px. The coordinates of the focus are (p, 0). The equation of the directrix is x = -p. If p > 0, the parabola opens right. If p < 0, the parabola opens left.

**Finding the Equation of a Parabola with Vertex (0, 0)**

A parabola has vertex (0, 0) and the focus on an axis. Write the equation of each parabola. a) The focus is (-6, 0). Since the focus is (-6, 0), the equation of the parabola is y2 = 4px. p is equal to the distance from the vertex to the focus, therefore p = -6. The equation of the parabola is y2 = -24x. b) The directrix is defined by x = 5. The equation of the directrix is x = -p, therefore -p = 5 or p = -5. Since the focus is on the x-axis, the equation of the parabola is y2 = 4px. The equation of the parabola is y2 = -20x. c) The focus is (0, 3). Since the focus is (0, 3), the equation of the parabola is x2 = 4py. p is equal to the distance from the vertex to the focus, therefore p = 3. The equation of the parabola is x2 = 12y.
