1. EXAMPLE 3 Write an equation of a translated parabola Write an equation of the parabola whose vertex is at (–2, 3) and whose focus is at (–4, 3). SOLUTION STEP 1 Determine the form of the equation. Begin by making a rough sketch of the parabola. Because the focus is to the left of the vertex, the parabola opens to the left, and its equation has the form (y – k)2 = 4p(x – h) where p < 0.

2. EXAMPLE 3 Write an equation of a translated parabola STEP 2 Identify h and k. The vertex is at (–2, 3), so h = –2 and k = 3. STEP 3 Find p. The vertex (–2, 3)and focus (–4, 3)both lie on the line y = 3, so the distance between them is | p | = | –4 – (–2) | = 2, and thus p = +2. Because p < 0, it follows that p = –2, so 4p = –8.

SOLUTION STEP 1 Determine the form of the equation. First sketch the ellipse. The foci lie on the major axis, so the axis is horizontal. The equation has this form:

Choose the co-vertex (4, 4) and the focus (1, 2): b= | 4 – 2 | = 2and c= | 1 – 4 | = 3.
