I'm trying to put this parabola in standard form which is: (y-k)^2=4p(x-h)

The equation is x=(1/12)(y-2)^2 +6

Here is what i have so far:

x=(1/12)(y-2)^2 +6

-6 -6

x-6=(1/12)(y-2)^2

*12 *12

Would it be

12x-6 OR 12x-72?

thanks

from

x-6=(1/12)(y-2)^2

multiply both sides by 12

12(x-6) = (y-2)^2 , which of course is

(y-2)^2 = 12(x-6) , leave it like that, or you lose the form requested.
