One option is imply to draw it and anaylize.

But here are some notes:

"vertex, focus, axis of symmetry, and directrix of the parabola"

But it may not show it in this form:

y^2 - 2y + 4x + 9 = 0

ay^2 + by + c = 0

Axis of symmetry: y = -b/2a

Vertex: where the y axis intercepts the parabola

Put in standard form (I bet this doesn't help):

(y-k)^2 = 4p(x-h)

p is distance from vertex to focus.

axis of symmetry: y = k

focus: (h+p), k)

directrix: x = h-p
