A parabola can be uniquely defined by its vertex *V* and one more point *P*.
The function term of the parabola then has the form

- [math] y = a(v-v_x)^2 + v_y [/math]

### JavaScript code

```
var b = JXG.JSXGraph.initBoard('box1', {boundingbox: [-5, 5, 5, -5], grid:true});
var v = b.create('point', [0,0], {name:'V'}),
p = b.create('point', [3,3], {name:'P'}),
f = b.create('functiongraph', [
function(x) {
var den = p.X()- v.X(),
a = (p.Y() - v.Y()) / (den * den);
return a * (x - v.X()) * (x - v.X()) + v.Y();
}]);
})();
```

### JavaScript code

```
var b = JXG.JSXGraph.initBoard('box2', {boundingbox: [-5, 5, 5, -5], grid:true});
var v = b.create('point', [0,0], {name:'V'}),
p = b.create('point', [3,3], {name:'P'}),
f = b.create('functiongraph', [
function(x) {
var den = p.Y()- v.Y(),
a = (p.X() - v.X()) / (den * den);
return Math.sqrt((x - v.X()) / a) + v.Y();
}]);
```
