Below you’ll find several common forms of the equation for a parabola. Click on the equation that best seems to match the parabolic equation you need to plot... |

These parabolas open upwards or downwards [ 1 ] y=a(x-h)^{2}+k[ 2 ] y=a(x-h)

^{2}[ 3 ] y=ax

^{2}+k[ 4 ] y=ax

^{2}

These parabolas open towards the left or right [ 5 ] x=a(y-k)^{2}+h[ 6 ] x=(y-k)
