Find the minimum distance from the parabola to the point {(0,-3)}
you should post in the appropriate thread first,
and the formula for distance is $\displaystyle \sqrt{{(x_2 - x_1)}^{2} + {(y_2 - y_1)}^{2}}$, you already have the values for $\displaystyle x_2 , y_2$,
you just have to play a little bit with your initial formula to get x_1 and y_1,
