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 .

The number of points (x,y) (where x and y both are perfect squares of integers) on the parabola y^2=px,p being a prime number, is ?
y 2 = px y = sqrt(px) Since x & y are perfect square integers, sqrt(x) is an integer. Since p is a prime no., sqrt(p) is an irrational no. The point which satisfies the given condition is...

if the extremities of a diagonal of a square are (1,-2,3) and (2,-3,5) then the lenght of its side is ?
Length of the diagonal of square is √ ((1-2) 2 + (-2+3) 2 +(3-5) 2 ) = √6 We aslo know that length of square is √2 times the side. This implies √2a= √6 ( where...
