Question #6 (Medium): Forming the Equation of Parabola
Given the distance between the focus and directrix, the vertex can be located, which is the midpoint
between the two. If the directrix is a vertical line, the parabola opens sideways and follows after the
from of ( ) ( ) with vertex at ( )
Find the equation for the conic that satisfies the given conditions.
Parabola, with focus at ( ) and directrix of
Since the directrix is a vertical line, th
