MA 154 Lesson 26 Delworth Section 11.1 Parabolas 1 In this lesson, we will find equations of parabolas with some given conditions. Find an equation of the parabola that satisfies the given conditions. Hint: Sketches are always helpful. Ex 1) Vertex V(1, 2) Ex 2) Vertex V(3, 2) Opening Down Opening Left Passing through the point P(3, -1) Passing through the point (0, 5) Ex 3) Focus F(3, 0) Ex 4) Focus F(0, –6) Directrix x = –1 Directrix y = 2 Opening down means this is a vertical parabola (the x is the squared variable). We know values for h, k, x, and
