# What is the equation for a parabola with vertex:(8,6) and focus:(3,6)?

##### 1 Answer

*For the parabola it is given*

**We are to find out the equation of the parabola**

The ordinates of V(8,6) and F(3,6) being 6 the axis of parabola will be parallel to x-axis and its equation is

Now let the coordinate of the point (M) of intersection of directrix and axis of parabola be

The directrix which is perpendicular to the axis (

Now if

*Replacing h by x and k by y we get the required equation of the parabola as*
