How would I put this parabola in standard form: x^2-6x+8y-31

Here how I started it:


Im not sure what to do from here :(

  • Precalc -

    If x^2-6x+8y-31 mean:

    x^2-6x+8y-31=0 then

    8y= -x^2+6x+31 Divide with 8

    y= -x^2/8 + 6x/8 + 31/8

    y= -x^2/8 + 3x/4 + 31/8

    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?
