PARABOLAS Topic 7.2

2
Definition The 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.

3
Writing linear equation in parabolic form GOAL: Turn

4
Writing linear equation in parabolic form 1. Start with 2. Group the two x-terms 3. Pull out the constant with x 2 from the grouping 4. Complete the square of the grouping **Look back to Topic 6.3 for help** 5. Write the squared term as subtraction so that you end with

5
**Remember that whatever you add in the grouping must be subtracted from the c-value** Group x-terms Pull out GCF Complete the Square Factor and simplify

6
Why write in parabolic form? It gives you necessary information to draw the parabola Equation Axis of symmetry x = hy = k Vertex (h, k) Focus Directrix Direction of openingUp: a>0, Down: a<0Right: a>0, Left: a<0 Latus Rectum

7
Graph of prior example

8
You Try!! Write the following equation in parabolic form. State the vertex, axis of symmetry and direction of opening.
