Homework Help: Math

Posted by Momo on Friday, January 2, 2009 at 1:42pm.

Find an equation of the parabola with vertex at the origin that passes through the point (-36, 2) and opens to the left.

I believe you start with (x-h)^2 = 4p(y-k) and plug in the given point and (0,0), and solve for p.

I got y^2 = 144x. Is this correct?

Thank you!
