Q:
# The vertex for of the equation of a parabola is x = ( y - 4 )2 + 27 what is the standard form

Accepted Solution

A:

Important: indicate exponentiation with " ^ "

Thus, x = ( y - 4 )2 + 27 becomes x = ( y - 4 )^2 + 27

This can be re-written as x = y^2 - 8y + 16 + 27, or x = ay^2 - 8y + 43. This is the equation of the parabola in standard form x = ay^2 + by + c.

Thus, x = ( y - 4 )2 + 27 becomes x = ( y - 4 )^2 + 27

This can be re-written as x = y^2 - 8y + 16 + 27, or x = ay^2 - 8y + 43. This is the equation of the parabola in standard form x = ay^2 + by + c.
