Graphing a Horizontal Parabola
We are used to looking at quadratic equations where "y" is the variable that is equal to the squared "x" terms. However, in a horizontal parabola the "x" is equal to the "y" term squared. Instead of going up and down, a horizontal parabola goes from side to side. When graphing a horizontal parabola, we first need to make sure the formula is in standard form and then plot accordingly.
