Convert the equation to the standard form for a hyperbola by completing the square on x and y. y^2 - 25x^2 + 4y + 50x - 46 = 0

    Yes A. (x+2)^2/25 - (y-1)^2 = 1 B. (x-1)^2 - (x+2)^2/25 = 1 C. (x+2)^2/25 - (x-1)^2 = 1

    actually there must be something wrong here, because the \(y^2\) term comes first

    \[y^2 - 25x^2 + 4y + 50x - 46 = 0 \]

    if the last one is really \[\frac{(y+2)^2}{25}-(x-1)^2=1\] then go with that one
