Because the focus is to the right of the vertex the standard form is:

#### Explanation:

Substitute the vertex

We can find the value of "a" using the formula:

Where is f is the signed horizontal distance from the vertex to the focus:

Substitute this into equation [2]:

Equation [3] is the answer.
