## anonymous 4 years ago Hey, I'm having issues with Hyperbola's.... I need to find the center of (x-2)^2/25 - (y-3)^2/36 = 1 Can anyone help?

1. anonymous

center is (2,3)

2. anonymous

.... I kinda wanted someone to explain how they got the answer (:

3. anonymous

the general equation for hyperbola: $\frac{(x-h)^{2}}{a^{2}} - \frac{(y-k)^{2}}{b^{2}} =1$ center is (h,k)

Tyvm (:

I have one more question for you Mr. Cow.... you said that the formula is (x−h)^2/a2−(y−k)^2/b2=1 does this mean that if the formula is (x-2)^2/25 that h = 2?
