Expert Answer

Let P(x.y) be any point on the parabola having its focus at S(0, -3) and directrix as the line y-3=0. then

SP=PM, where PM is the length of perpendicular from P on the directrix.

this implies SP square = PM square

(x-0) square + (y+3) square= (y-3) square

On simplifying, this implies the eqation of parabola is

x square = -12y
