Q1

Since the focus is to the right of the vertex, this parabola opens to the right

The form is

4a ( x - h) = (y - k)^2

Where (h, k) is the vertex = (-5,2) and "a" is the distance from the vertex to the focus = 4

So we have

4(4)(x + 5)) = (y - 2)^2 which we can write as

(y - 2)^2 = 16 ( x + 5)
