Start with this info:

The standard form is (x - h)2 = 4p (y - k), where the focus is (h, k + p) and the directrix is y = k - p.

we'll try to get your equation in that form....then everything pops out at ya...

(x-2)^2 = 24 (y-3)

(x-2)^2 = 4(6)(y-3) Now you can see that the focus is 2,9 and the directrix is y = 3-6 = -3
