I found three points of my parabola: (2.5, 1), (7, 4), and (11.5, 1). I need to put my parabola into standard form, but I am not sure how to do it with the information that I have.

I am trying to make a mold for satellite dish . I can calculate the maths but my biggest challenge is plotting the graph . I need a tutor that can put me through
How do I solve the equation: -4 = -1 divided by 4*a
Working on parabolas and I do not understand how to do this.
Suppose that a 200 feet long suspension bridge has at its end towers that are 100 feet tall. If the cable come with in 15 feet of the road at the center of the bridge, find the function that models...
The parabola is a graph of the equation y = (x-1)^2 - 3 which point will satisfy the inequality y<(x-1)^2 - 3? A.) (1,0) B.) (5,3) C.) (2,5) D.) (0,5)
A rectangle is inscribed with its base on the x-axis and its upper corners on the parabola y=8-x2 . What are the dimensions of such a rectangle with the greatest possible area? width=? height=...
Find the focus, directrix, and focal diameter of the parabola. 2xsqaured +13y = 0
How can I find the equation of a parabola when I am given a=1 (I have a graph but do not know the steps I need to take)
Given the equation -5 (x - 2)2 -1=y a. Identify the vertex. b. Identify the axis of the symmetry. c. Identify the direction of the graph (whether it opens up or down).
focus at (0,2)
I had to find the coordinates of the vertex and the equation of the axis of symmetry for the parabola given the by the equation h(x)=-1/2x to the 2nd power +4x-8 and the answer I came up with...
Find the point on the graph of y=x2 +1 that is closest to the point (8, 3/2).
Two parabolas y=16-3x2 and y=x2-9 are drawn. A rectangle is contructed with sides parallel to the coordinate axes with the two upper vertices on the graph of y=16-3x2 and the two lower vertices...
The equation of parabola is y=_________
this is for my math assighnment that is overdue
conic sections - parabolas, ellipses and hyperbolas. Look around in your day (home, work, etc) and see if you observe any of the conic sections. In each explanation, indiciate what...
Sometimes only half of a parabola is used to model data. Why is this the case? Why would we not be interested in both sides?
So, I was playing with an online graphing calculator and I plugged in 0.5x2 x2 and 2x2 and when I went up to higher numbers, such as x=10, I noticed they were unevenly spaced. This...
using y = x^2 - 4x -32 how do I identify if the parabola opens up or down so I can explain the conclusion. Thank you
