Parabolas Parabola—Set of all points in a plane that are the same distance from a given point called the focus and a given line called the directrix. Focus Vertex Directrix

3
**Parabolas with Vertex (0,0) that Open Up/Down**

y = ax2 +a → opens up, -a → opens down focus: (0, ) 1 4a vertex: (0, 0) directrix: y = – 1 4a c = 1 4a c is the distance from the vertex

4
**Parabolas with Vertex (0,0) that Open Left/Right**

x = ay2 +a → opens right, -a → opens left focus: ( , 0) 1 4a vertex: (0, 0) directrix: x = – 1 4a c = 1 4a c is the distance from the vertex

5
**Parabola Opens Up/Down**

y – k = a(x – h)2 +a → opens up, -a → opens down focus: (h, k ) 1 4a vertex: (h, k) directrix: y = k – 1 4a

6
**Parabola Opens Left/Right**

x – h = a(y – k)2 +a → opens right, -a → opens left focus: (h , k) 1 4a vertex: (h, k) directrix: x = h – 1 4a

13
**x = - y2 Graph opens left vertex: (0, 0) 1 = -4 4(-1/16) focus: (-4,0)**

directrix: x = 4

14
**Graph y – 3 = − (x + 3)2 opens down vertex: (-3, 3) 1 = -4 4(- )**

16 opens down vertex: (-3, 3) x y 1 = -4 1 4(- ) 16 focus: (-3,-1) directrix: y = 7

15
**Write the equation in standard form and graph the parabola**

Write the equation in standard form and graph the parabola. y2 – 8y + 8x + 8 = 0 y2 – 8y = -8x – 8 y2 – 8y + ___ = -8x – 8 16 +16 (y – 4)2 = -8x + 8 (y – 4)2 = -8(x – 1) -8 -⅛(y – 4)2 = x – 1 x – 1 = -⅛(y – 4)2

16
**x – 1 = -⅛(y – 4)2 vertex: (1, 4) opens left 1 = -2 4(- )**

17
**Write the equation in standard form and graph the parabola**

Write the equation in standard form and graph the parabola. x2 – 6x + 6y + 18 = 0 x2 – 6x = -6y – 18 x2 – 6x + ___ = -6y − 18 9 +9 (x – 3)2 = -6y – 9 (x – 3)2 = -6(y ) -6 - (x – 3)2 = y +1.5 1 6 y = - (x − 3)2 1 6
