    I need to find the vertices of the hyperbola: (y+@)^2/1 - (x+9)^2/9 = 1

    Got this little chart from Paul's notes. It pretty much has all you need to know about hyperbolas =P

    In your case, k = -2, h = -9, b = 1, a = 3. So the vertices are (-9, -1) and (-9, -3).

    I should be correct. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=vertices+of+%28y%2B2%29^2%2F1+-+%28x%2B9%29^2%2F9+%3D+1

    Yeah, but you have to be super careful, or else you easily lose points on your homework. I remember every time I was so sure I was right, but the computer spat out a red "incorrect." It got very frustrating :/

    it would be nice if it would say how/where you got it wrong, but computers aren't that smart (yet)
