# How do you find the focus, vertex, and directrix of #x = 3(y – 1)^2 + 2#?

The vertex is

The focus is

The equation of the directrix is:

The given equation is in the vertex form of a parabola that opens either to the left or right:

where (h, k) is the vertex and f is the distance from the vertex to the focus.

The focus has the same x coordinate as the vertex but the y coordinate is increased by distance f:

The directrix is a vertical line with perpendicular distance -f from the vertex:

To find the focus, vertex, and directrix of the parabola represented by the equation x = 3(y – 1)^2 + 2, you need to rewrite the equation in standard form (y - k)^2 = 4p(x - h), where (h, k) is the vertex and p is the distance from the vertex to the focus and from the vertex to the directrix. Then, you can easily identify the focus, vertex, and directrix.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
