You will plot them similar to how you will plot the sin plot. If you remember in sin plot you mentioned the equation that you desired in the plot function.

For parabola, hyperbola and ellipses you will similarly specify the relevant functions along with the x value in the plot functions.

This could be a good exercise to see if you have understood how the plot function working.

You can plot parabola using its equation, as follows

Step 1 : import plot library

**Import matplotlib**

Step 2: Create Data range i.e. you want 20 points starting from -50 to +50

**x=linespace(-50,50,20)**

Step 3: lets say parabola equation is y=x**2, It will store square value of each x`s point into y

**y=x**2**

Step 4: Now, we have X and Y both, So, first initiate plot library than plot

**%pylab**

**plot(x,y)**
