 Question 71804This question is from textbook algebra 2 : after i find the focus,directrix, aixis of symmetry, vertex and everything else how do i graph the parabola?This question is from textbook algebra 2 Answer by Edwin McCravy(8921)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!```after i find the focus,directrix, aixis of symmetry, vertex and everything else how do i graph the parabola? Suppose you have the focus, vertex, and directrix: .F .V _______________ directrix 1. Draw a line segment from the focus F through the vertex V to the directrix. .F | | .V | __________|__________ directrix 2. Draw two adjacent squares which have that seqment as a common side. P__________.F_________Q | | | | | | | .V | | | | |__________|__________| directrix Draw the parabola through the vertex V and the points marked P and Q. Edwin```
