This question seems easy enough, but I'm having a hard time getting my mind around it. I want to find the solution to a second order polynomial (parabola) defined by the following criteria...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) It passes through points a and b

2) At point a the slope of the curve is zero (horizontal)

3) At point b the slope of the curve is infinite (vertical)

The primary axis of the parabola will obviously need to be rotated by a certain angle to satisfy the slope requirements.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
