I'll provide a solution later:

 1. \(y = -\frac{1}{8}x^2+2\)

Ah, here it is!

The vertex has to be right in between them, so the vertex is \((0, 2)\). Now, we use the equation \((x-h)^2=4p(y-k)\)\(p = -2\) , because that is the directed distance between the vertex and focus. We get than \(x^2 = -8(y-2)\), so 

 

\(\boxed{y = -\frac{1}{8}x^2+2}\) is the desired equation.

Thank you so much, but my teacher says it's \(y=- \frac{x^2}{8}+2\)
