the above equation can be written as 


                                                   ( 2y-5)^2=2(x+4)


                                                   therefore the length of the latus rectum is 2

A small mistake in the above post.


 


(2y-5)2 = -2x-17+25 = -2x+8 = -2(x-4)


 


or, (y- 5/2)2 = -1/2 * (x-4)


 


So Latus Rectum is 1/2 .
