A thrown Basketball follows a path that can be approximated by a parabola. The approximation ignores air resistance and any curve imparted by spin on the ball. Over the distances involved, both are likely to be negligible.
It can be used in anything that requires an object to go up, then come down due to gravity. So yes, it can be used for basketball games
All of the points on a parabola define a parabola. However, the vertex is the point in which the y value is only used for one point on the parabola.
With you throw the ball, it moves in the shape of a parabola. It is also based on points (numbers).
A basketball gets used when you play basketball.
Descartes used the parabola to illustrate algebraic equations. He put these equations on a visible plane using the Cartesian coordinate system and they sometimes took the shape of a "u" curve, or a parabola.

No. If you tilt a parabola, you will still have a parabolic curve but it will no longer be a parabola.
A parabola is NOT a point, it is the whole curve.
what are the effects of the sign a and n to the parabola
The only thing I can think of is a lobbed shot at the basket will approximately follow the path of a parabola, which is one of the conic sections.
A parabola opening up has a minimum, while a parabola opening down has a maximum.
