EXAMPLE 1 Graph an equation of a parabola STEP 2 Identify the focus, directrix, and axis of symmetry. The equation has the form y 2 = 4px where p = – 2. The focus is (p, 0), or (– 2, 0). The directrix is x = – p, or x = 2. Because y is squared, the axis of symmetry is the x - axis. STEP 3 Draw the parabola by making a table of values and plotting points. Because p < 0, the parabola opens to the left. So, use only negative x - values.
