HOW TO FIND THE EQUATION OF A PARABOLA FROM ITS FOCUS AND DIRECTRIX

How do you find the equation of a parabola given its focus and directrix. Watch this video to find out. Here, we learn how a parabola is derived when a plane cuts a cone. We learn that, for a parabola, distance of a point from the focus = distance of the point from the directrix. We solve problems based on this principle and also learn how to calculate equation of the axis and the coordinates of the vertex. Problems of the type-" Find the equation of a parabola with focus at (3,-4) and directrix x + y = -4 . Also find the equation of the axis " are discussed and more such problems. Online tutoring is provided. You can choose between specific topics or the entire course. For more details, you can contact me on mathmadeeasy22@gmail.com.
