### Re: EQUATION OF ELLIPSE given directrix at y = ...

Hey, thanks for the reply. I just wanna ask how did you arrive on the equation 9(sqrt{5})/5 + 2 = 4/c?Also, I tried to solve for the c without actually looking at your solution and I didn't get to arrive at solving the c using quadratic formula. I cross-multiplied c to the left side so I end up with...

### EQUATION OF ELLIPSE given directrix at y = ...

Find the equation of the ellipse given directrix at y = (9)(sqrt of 5)/5 + 2, center at (2, -6) and one
of the vertices on (2, -4).

Spent hours on this one. I don't know if this is possible to solve. Can't find solutions on any modules. Please help. Thank you so much.

### Equation of the Parabola

1.) Find the equation of the parabola passing through (-4,-6) whose vertex at (-2,-4) and whose axis is parallel to x-axis. 2.)What is the equation of the parabola w/vertex at (2,6) and y=7 as directrix. Hope you guys can provide me answers and a step by step procedure on how to solve this one. Tha...
