may be a circle, ellipse, parabola, hyperbola or even a line, point, or line. An parabola is obtained from conic

section when the answer to this formula B^2 – 4 A C is zero and eccentricity is 1. The equation for the conic

section parabola is:

Y^2 = 4 a x and x^2 = 4ay

Eccentricity is always 1 and parametric equation is (a t^2, 2 a t)

Parametric equation = (a t^2, 2 a t)

Plugging in the values of t and a we get,

Parametric = (2) (4)^2, 2 (2) (4)

(2) (16), (4) (4)

32, 16

equation.

The parabolic equation is y^2 = 4ax

Plugging in the values of a and x we get,

y^2 = 4 (16) ( 9 )

y = 2 (4) (3) = 24
