Circles and ParabolasReview
Centered at (h, k)
Circles are a special type of ellipses. There is a center that is the same distance from every point on the diameter. In the equation the center is at (h, k). The distance from the center to any point on the line is called the radius of the circle. From the equation to find the radius you take the square root of r2.
A parabola is a curve that is oriented either up, down, left, or right. The vertex of the parabola is at (h, k). In the equation the h value added or subtracted to x moves the parabola left and right. If you subtract the value of h the parabola moves to the right. If you add the value of h the parabola moves to the left. Parabolas are symmetrical across the line through the vertex of the parabola.
Vertex: (-2, 1)
To get the Focus:
½ ÷ 4 = ½ ∙ ¼ = 1/8, so
from the vertex (-2, 1)
we stay at -2 and add 1/8
to the y coordinate (1).
Focus: (-2, 9/8)
To get the Directrix:
From the vertex we subtract 1/8 from the y coordinate (1).
Directrix: y = 7/8
y = 7/8
