29-34 ■Finding the Equation of Shifted Conic Find an equation for the conic whose graph is shown.
An equation for the conic whose graph is shown.
From given graph one can find out vertex and the point of intersection with -axis. Then the standard equation of shifted parabola facing up down can be used
We can find the vertex from the graph and its value is , so and .
Now by putting the value of in the standard equation of shifted parabola facing downward
Above equation must satisfy the point of intersection of graph with -axis
