Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the vertex is the highest or the lowest point of a parabola in the form \(f(x) = a(xh) + k \) (h, k) is the vertex on condition that a is not equal to zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because with a hyperbola there are basically two parabolas

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2YOur hyperbola has the form \(\dfrac{x^2}{a^2}\dfrac{y^2}{b^2}=1\) where \(a^2 = 16\) and \(b^2 = 25\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Foci will lie on xaxis, and it is calculated by \(c^2 = a^2+b^2 = 16+25 =41\) hence, foci are \((\pm \sqrt {41},0)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2One more thing: it doesn't have directrix but the center, and you know how to find the center, right? just (0,0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait no, how is the center found??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2half way of foci, in this case, it is ALWAYS =(0,0)dw:1432873065615:dw
