 Question 370709: Write the equation of a parabola with vertex (-3, 5) passing through (-4, 6). Find the values of x when y=8. i have NO idea where to even begin.Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi, Using the vertex form of a parabola, where(h,k) is the vertex vertex (-3, 5) y = a(x+3)^2 + 5 parabola passes through (-4, 6) 6 = a(-4+3)^2 + 5 6 = a + 5 1 = a Equation of parabola: y = 1*(x+3)^2 + 5 Or y =(x+3)^2 + 5 ```
