I'm trying to solve this problem to study for a competition:
The endpoints of the latus rectum (focal diameter) of a parabola are (-1, 2) and (7, 2). The vertex of this parabola lies in the first quadrant. Determine the coordinates of this vertex. Express your answer as the ordered pair (x, y)
So what I've figured out so far is that the focus is (3, 2) just because it's the midpoint of the latus rectum. Also, this means that the x-coordinate of the vertex is 3. I just can't figure out how to find the y-coordinate of the vertex without more information.
