Conics parabolas

Algebra • Calculus • Geometry

Below is an equation for a parabola in general conic form as well as a graph. As you can see, only one term (x or y) is squared.

This graph is a horizontal parabola. For vertical parabolas, the x term will be squared and the y one will not. Also, the focus will change to be (h, k + p) and the directrix will change to y = k - p.
