1. ## parabola question

hi guys need help finding the equation of the parabola with focus (1,6) and directrix y = 0:

i know the distance from the focus point and directrix will be 6 or distance from vertex point to focus will be 3.. just dont know how to use the parabola formula to determine the equation. cheers
