## Main Question or Discussion Point

I read that concave mirrors are part of a sphere, and concave mirrors can also be expressed in a parabola equation, but a parabola equation is expressed as #4py=x^2# and a circle as #x^2+y^2=R^2#. So the two can't be the same right? Can someone please explain this? Thank you in advance :)
