# 55–64 ■ Finding the Equation of a Conic Find an equation for the conic section with the given properties.The parabola with vertex V ( − 1 , 0 ) and horizontal axis of symmetry and crossing the y -axis at y = 2 .

To determine

To find:

The equation for the conic section

Explanation

Given:

The parabola with vertex V(1,0) and horizontal axis of symmetry and crossing the y axis at y=2.

Approach:

The equation of parabola with horizontal axis is given by:

(yk)2=4p(xh).

Calculation:

Vertex is V(1,0), so h=1,k=0.

The equation of parabola is

(y0)2=4p(x(1))
