Hello, Shivanand!

We are given: .Find the vertex and latus rectum of the parabola:

To find the vertex n latus rectum is easy through standard formula

but the given formula is not in standard form . . . . It isn't?

We already know:

. . that the vertex is at (-2,-3)

. . that the parabola opens to the right

. . that

So the parabola looks like this:The latus rectum isCode:L * * * : * : 2p * : : V * - - - * F - - - - - - p : * : * : 2p * : * R *

I don't see any difficulty . . .
