Parabola: the set of points in a plane that are the same distance from a given point called the focus and a given line called the directrix.

Axis of symmetry Note the point midway between the directrix and the focus Vertex 4

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.

Practice 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 (8, 0). The equation of the parabola is y2 = 32x. b) The directrix is defined by x = 3. The equation of the parabola is y2 = -12x. c) The focus is (0, -5). The equation of the parabola is x2 = -20y.

Find the focus and directrix of the following:
WARM -UP Find the focus and directrix of the following: 2. (try this one on your own) x = 8y2 1. (try this one on your own) y = -6x2 FOCUS (0, -1/24) Directrix y = 1/24 FOCUS (1/32, 0) Directrix x = -32

Horizontal Axis, directrix: x = h-p
(y-k)2 =4p(x-h),p≠0 Horizontal Axis, directrix: x = h-p The equation of the axis of symmetry is y = k. The coordinates of the focus are (h + p, k). The equation of the directrix is x = h - p.

Ex: Write the equation of the parabola with a focus at (3, 5) and the directrix at x = 9, in standard form and general form. The distance from the focus to the directrix is 6 units, therefore, 2p = -6, p = -3. Thus, the vertex is (6, 5). The axis of symmetry is parallel to the x-axis: (y - k)2 = 4p(x - h) h = 6 and k = 5 (y - 5)2 = 4(-3)(x - 6) (y - 5)2 = -12(x - 6) Standard form y2 - 10y + 25 = -12x + 72 y2 + 12x - 10y - 47 = 0 General form

(y-6)2 = -8(x-6) Standard Form
Practice Write the equation of the parabola with a focus at (4, 6) and the directrix at x = 8, in standard form and general form. Vertex: (6,6) (y-6)2 = -8(x-6) Standard Form y2 + 8x -12y -12 General Form

Standard Equation of a Parabola with vertex at (h,k)
(x-h)2 =4p(y-k),p≠0 Vertical Axis, directrix: y = k-p The equation of the axis of symmetry is x = h. The coordinates of the focus are (h, k + p). The equation of the directrix is y = k - p. The general form of the parabola is Ax2 + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0 where A = 0 or C = 0.

Find the equation of the parabola that has a
min at (-2, 6) and passes through the point (2, 8). The axis of symmetry is parallel to the y-axis. The vertex is (-2, 6), therefore, h = -2 and k = 6. Substitute into the standard form of the equation and solve for p: (x - h)2 = 4p(y - k) x = 2 and y = 8 (2 - (-2))2 = 4p(8 - 6) 16 = 8p 2 = p (x - h)2 = 4p(y - k) (x - (-2))2 = 4(2)(y - 6) (x + 2)2 = 8(y - 6) Standard form x2 + 4x + 4 = 8y - 48 x2 + 4x - 8y + 52 = 0 General form

The equation of the axis of symmetry is y = k. The equation of the axis of symmetry is x = h. The coordinates of the focus are (h + p, k). The coordinates of the focus are (h, k + p). The equation of the directrix is x = h - p. The equation of the directrix is y = k - p.

Analyzing a Parabola Find the coordinates of the vertex and focus,
the equation of the directrix, the axis of symmetry, and the direction of opening of y2 - 8x - 2y - 15 = 0. y2 - 8x - 2y - 15 = 0 y2 - 2y + _____ = 8x _____ 1 1 (y - 1)2 = 8x + 16 (y - 1)2 = 8(x + 2) Standard form 4p = 8 p = 2 The vertex is (-2, 1). The focus is (0, 1). The equation of the directrix is x + 4 = 0. The axis of symmetry is y - 1 = 0. The parabola opens to the right.

Finding the FOCUS DIRECTRIX
y = 4x2 x = -3y2 y = 4(4py) y = 16py 1 = 16p 1/16 = p x = -3(4px) x = -12px 1 = -12p -1/12 = p FOCUS: (0, 1/16) FOCUS: (-1/12, 0) Directrix Y = - 1/16 Directrix x = 1/12

Find the equation of the parabola that has a
min at (-2, 6) and passes through the point (2, 8). The axis of symmetry is parallel to the y-axis. The vertex is (-2, 6), therefore, h = -2 and k = 6. Substitute into the standard form of the equation and solve for p: (x - h)2 = 4p(y - k) x = 2 and y = 8 (2 - (-2))2 = 4p(8 - 6) 16 = 8p 2 = p (x - h)2 = 4p(y - k) (x - (-2))2 = 4(2)(y - 6) (x + 2)2 = 8(y - 6) Standard form x2 + 4x + 4 = 8y - 48 x2 + 4x - 8y + 52 = 0 General form

Ex: Write the equation of the parabola with a focus at (3, 5) and the directrix at x = 9, in standard form and general form. The distance from the focus to the directrix is 6 units, therefore, 2p = -6, p = -3. Thus, the vertex is (6, 5). The axis of symmetry is parallel to the x-axis: (y - k)2 = 4p(x - h) h = 6 and k = 5 (y - 5)2 = 4(-3)(x - 6) (y - 5)2 = -12(x - 6) Standard form y2 - 10y + 25 = -12x + 72 y2 + 12x - 10y - 47 = 0 General form
