Find the equation of the parabola that satisfies the following conditions: Vertex (0, 0) passing through (2, 3) and axis is along x-axis
Since the vertex is (0, 0) and the axis of the parabola is the x-axis, the equation of the parabola is either of the form y2 = 4ax or y2 = –4ax.
The parabola passes through point (2, 3), which lies in the first quadrant.
Therefore, the equation of the parabola is of the form y2 = 4ax, while point
(2, 3) must satisfy the equation y2 = 4ax.
