# At What Point of the Parabola X2 = 9y is the Abscissa Three Times that of Ordinate? - Mathematics

At what point of the parabola x2 = 9y is the abscissa three times that of ordinate?

#### Solution

Putting x = 3y in the given equation of the parabola:

$9 y^2 = 9y$
$\Rightarrow 9y\left( y - 1 \right) = 0$
$\Rightarrow y = 0, 1$

At y = 0, = 0
At y = 1, = 3
Therefore, at (1, 3), the abscissa is three times that of the ordinate.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
