The National Evaluation Series are exams that prospective high school teachers have to take to qualify. NES helpfully provides a formula sheet for prospective high school mathematics teachers to memorize before taking this exam, which could potentially end their career. https://www.nestest.com/Content/Docs...rofile_304.pdf Check out the equation for a parabola on page two!

It's just a constant! It makes not difference where it is.
