## Homework Statement

Find an equation is standard form for the conic that satisfies the given condition.

Parabola: vertex (2,3), vertical axis passing through (1,5)

## Homework Equations

vertex= (h,k)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know how to solve a problem like this if I was given the vertex and/or any combination of focus, directrix, p, etc. What is confusing me about this problem is "vertical axis passing through 1,5". In all of my HW problems I have never encountered a problem in which this was given as information to find the equation. I do not know what it has to do with the problem or how that information allows me to continue on.

Any help on what relevance that has for this problem/ equations relevant to that to allow me to work this out would be very much appreciated, thank you.
