If you want to sketch graphs you have to observe the parabola first then find the vertex afterwards you connect them and you've arrived at your answer. In order to write equations for parabolas it has to have x square in it. The standard equation for a parabola is (y - k)2 = 4a(x - h) where h and k are the x- and y-coordinates of the vertex of the parabola and 'a' is a non zero real number. This website at the related link should help, for the equation at least. A parabola is a basic U shaped graph that meets at one point called a vertex. The equation for Andy parabola must have a number being squared such as x2.

The vertex of this parabola is at -3 -1 When the y-value is 0 the x-value is 4. The coefficient of the squared term in the parabolas equation is 7

A parabola is a type of graph that is not linear, and mostly curved. A parabola has the "x squared" sign in it's equation. A parabola is not only curved, but all the symmetrical. The symmetrical point, the middle of the parabola is called the vertex. You can graph this graph with the vertex, x-intercepts and a y-intercept. A parabola that has a positive x squared would be a smile parabola, and the one with the negative x squared would be a frown parabola. Also, there are the parabolas that are not up or down, but sideways Those parabolas have x=y squared, instead of y = x squared.

Most likely you have an equation of a parabola. The vertex of a parabola is the location where it changes from going down, to going up (a simplified explanation). Most parabolas that we think of are oriented up or down (the axis is parallel to the y axis), but they could be oriented sideways, or even at an angle. To calculate the vertex of a parabola ususally means to find the coordinates of the vertex.
