## Answers ( No )

negative 1 divided by 12 times x squared = y

To find vertex we use formula x= -b/2a

From the given equation a= -1/12 and b =0

Plug in the values in the formula

Now plug in x=0 in the given equation and find out y

So y=0

Hence

vertex is (0,0), h=0 and k =0Focus is (h, k+p)

We need to find out p

We know a= -1/12

p = 1/4a

So focus is (0,0-3) that is (0, -3)Directrix is y = k – p

We know p = -3 and k=0

y = 0 -(-3) = 3. so

directrix is y = 3Focal width = |4p|

We know p = -3

so it becomes |4(-3)| = 12

Focal width = 12
