A scientist is developing a parabolic object that is made up of mirrors and uses the sun’s rays to focus heat on one particular location. To create a prototype of this object, she graphs a parabola on a coordinate plane that has a focus of (3,2) and a directrix of y=1. This parabola can be represented by the equation (x−3)^2 = a(y−1.5).
