(b) The vertex is 3 units above the directrix so p = 3, (x − 1)2 = 12(y − 1).
24. (a) y 2 = 4px, p = 6, y 2 = 24x
(b) The vertex is half way between the focus and directrix so the vertex is at (2, 4), the focus is 3
units to the left of the vertex so p = 3, (y − 4)2 = −12(x − 2)
25. y 2 = a(x − h), 4 = a(3 − h) and 9 = a(2 − h), solve simultaneously to get h = 19/5, a = −5 so
y 2 = −5(x − 19/5)
26. (x − 5)2 = a(y + 3), (9 − 5)2 = a(5 + 3) so a = 2, (x − 5)2 = 2(y + 3)
27. (a) x2 /9 + y 2 /4 = 1
(b) a = 26/2 = 13, c = 5, b2 = a2 − c2 = 169 − 25 = 144; x2 /169 + y 2 /144 = 1 Exercise Set 12.4 428 28. (a) x2 + y 2 /5 = 1
(b) b = 8, c = 6, a2 = b2 + c2 = 64 + 36 = 100; x2 /64 + y 2 /100 = 1
29. (a) c = 1, a2 = b2 + c2 = 2 + 1 = 3; x2 /3 + y 2 /2 = 1
(b) b2 = 16 − 12 = 4; x2 /16 + y 2 /4 = 1 and x2 /4 + y 2 /16 = 1
30. (a) c = 3, b2 = a2 − c2 = 16 − 9 = 7; x2 /16 + y 2 /7 = 1
(b) a2 = 9 + 16 = 25; x2 /25 + y 2 /9 = 1 and x2 /9 + y 2 /25 = 1
31. (a) a = 6, (2, 3) satisﬁes x2 /36 + y 2 /b2 = 1 so 4/36 + 9/b2 = 1, b2 = 81/8; x2 /36 + y 2 /(81/8) = 1
(b) The center is midway between the foci so it is at (1, 3), thus c = 1, b = 1, a2 = 1 + 1 = 2;
(x − 1)2 + (y − 3)2 /2 = 1
32. (a) Substitute (3, 2) and (1, 6) into x2 /A + y 2 /B = 1 to get 9/A + 4/B = 1 and 1/A + 36/B = 1
which yields A = 10, B = 40; x2 /10 + y 2 /40 = 1
(b) The center is at (2, −1) thus c = 2, a = 3, b2 = 9 − 4 = 5; (x − 2)2 /5 + (y + 1)2 /9 = 1
33. (a) a = 2, c = 3, b2 = 9 − 4 = 5; x2 /4 − y 2 /5 = 1
(b) a = 1, b/a = 2, b = 2; x2 − y 2 /4 = 1
34. (a) a = 3, c = 5, b2 = 25 − 9 = 16; y 2 /9 − x2 /16 = 1
(b) a = 3, a/b = 1, b = 3; y 2 /9 − x2 /9 = 1
35. (a) vertices along xaxis: b/a = 3/2 so a = 8/3; x2 /(64/9) − y 2 /16 = 1
vertices along y axis: a/b = 3/2 so a = 6; y 2 /36 − x2 /16 = 1
(b) c = 5, a/b = 2 and a2 + b2 = 25, solve to get a2 = 20, b2 = 5; y 2 /20 − x2 /5 = 1
36. (a) foci along the xaxis: b/a = 3/4 and a2 + b2 = 25, solve to get a2 = 16, b2 = 9;
x2 /16 − y 2 /9 = 1
foci along the y axis: a/b = 3/4 and a2 + b2 = 25 which results in y 2 /9 − x2 /16 = 1
(b) c = 3, b/a = 2 and a2 + b2 = 9 so a2 = 9/5, b2 = 36/5; x2 /(9/5) − y 2 /(36/5) = 1
37. (a) the center is at (6, 4), a = 4, c = 5, b2 = 25 − 16 = 9; (x − 6)2 /16 − (y − 4)2 /9 = 1
(b) The asymptotes intersect at (1/2, 2) which is the center, (y − 2)2 /a2 − (x − 1/2)2 /b2 = 1 is
the form of the equation because (0, 0) is below both asymptotes, 4/a2 − (1/4)/b2 = 1 and
a/b = 2 which yields a2 = 3, b2 = 3/4; (y − 2)2 /3 − (x − 1/2)2 /(3/4) = 1.
38. (a) the center is at (1, −2); a = 2, c = 10, b2 = 100 − 4 = 96; (y + 2)2 /4 − (x − 1)2 /96 = 1

point on the parabola y 2 = 4px, then by the deﬁnition of a parabola, P F = distance from P to
directrix x = −p, so P F = x0 + p where x0 ≥ 0 and P F is a minimum when x0 = 0 (the vertex).
42. Let p = distance (in millions of miles) between
the vertex (closest point) and the focus F ,
then P D = P F , 2p + 20 = 40, p = 10 million miles. P D

point on the curve so (1/2)2 = 4p(1), p = 1/16. The light source should be placed at the focus
which is 1/16 ft. from the vertex.
44. (a) Substitute x2 = y/2 into y 2 − 8x2 = 5 to get y 2 − 4y − 5 = 0;
y = −1, 5. Use x2 = y/2 to ﬁnd that there is no solution if
