Parabolic Numbers (Posted on 2017-09-18) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Consider two points on parabola y=x2, (-a,a2) and (b,b2), where a and b are distinct real numbers.

If these two points are connected by a straight line, where does that line intersect the y-axis?


Inspired by an interactive sculpture at the Museum of Mathematics, NYC.
