# Find an equation for the parabola with focus at (-5,-4) and vertex at (-5,-3)

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

Focus point = (-5, -4)

Vertex point = (-5, -3)

We need to find the equation for the parabola.

Solution:

Since the x-coordinates of the vertex and focus are the same,

so this is a regular vertical parabola, where the x part is squared. Since the vertex is above the focus, this is a right-side down parabola and p is negative.

The vertex of this parabola is at (h, k) and the focus is at (h, k + p). So, directrix is y = k - p.

Substitute y = -4 and k = -3.

So the standard form of the parabola is written as.

Substitute vertex (h, k) = (-5, -3) and p = -1 in the above standard form of the parabola.

So the standard form of the parabola is written as.

Therefore, equation for the parabola with focus at (-5,-4) and vertex at (-5,-3)

Photo above! How do I find the area of this? I'm more concerned about how to find the answer than the actual answer itself. I just need to know how to find the area

Well, this is how I do it. Multiply 4 and 10 and get the area of the whole thing. Answer is 40. Then, multiply 3 and 5. (I got 5 from subtracting 2 and 3 from 10). This gives me the area of the missing piece. Answer is 15. Lastly, I subracted. 40 - 15. Gave me 35. My final answer I got is 35. I hope my answer is correct! I hope this helped!

Given (x) - 3x-1 and g(x)=2x-3, for which value of x does g(x) = f(2)?

Question:

Given f(x) = 3x-1 and g(x)=2x-3, for which value of x does g(x) = f(2)?

The value of x is 4 for g(x) = f(2)

Solution:

Given that,

We have to find the value of "x" such that g(x) = f(2)

Let us first find f(2)

Substitute x = 2 in f(x) function

Thus f(2) is 5

Now find: g(x) = f(2)

Equate given function of g(x) and f(2) which is found to be 5

Thus for x = 4 , we get g(x) = f(2)
