can anyone help with this Q!
a) 1 mark using m=m, (2a,0)

Set up a straight line equation

b) Simultaneously solve and your other straight line equation, then don't forget its the midpoint, so once you have P and Q find the midpoint of the two points, R

c) is beyond my knowledge

d) Sub your coordinates of into the parabola, you should get m to cancel out, once you've done this you can solve for a, the focus of the parabola is denoted as and the directrix is (the reason you sub R in, is to cancel the x and y, and to not leave a=0)
