The underside of a bridge has the shape of a parabolic arch. It has a maximum height of 30m and a width of 50m. Can a sailboat with a mast of 27m above the water pass under the bridge at a distance...
Find two or more numbers having a sum of 50 such that the sum of the square of one and three times the square of the other is a minimum.
The height y of a parabolic arch is given by y=-1/16x2+40, where x is the horizontal distance from the center of the base of The arch. All distances are in feet. What is the highest point on the...

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=...
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.
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...
