# How do write standard form of equation of the parabola given that vertex is (5/2, - 3/4) and graph passes through point (-2 ,4)?

##### 1 Answer

Express the parabola in vertex form and work from there to obtain

#### Explanation:

We might just want to jump into the problem and try finding the standard form

Where

The vertex is given in the problem, so:

We have to find the value of the constant

Our equation in vertex form is therefore:

We can expand the right hand side to find the standard form:
