1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data y2 - 8x + 4y + 12 = 0 I need to find the vertex, focus, axis of symmetry, directrix, direction and p. 2. Relevant equations N/A 3. The attempt at a solution No attempt as this is the first one I've encountered in general form. I'm not even looking for an answer, but if someone knows where to find a website or tutorial which helps in solving a conic parabola in this form then it would be very helpful.
