What is the general equation for a parabola?

Dec 23rd, 2014

The "general" form of a parabola's equation is the one you're used to,  y = ax2 + bx + c — 

unless the quadratic is "sideways"

in which case the equation will look something like x = ay2 + by + c

The important difference in the two equations is in which variable is squared: for regular (vertical) parabolas, the x part is squared; for sideways (horizontal) parabolas, the y part is squared.
