Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok I understand that the top half of the equation with be (x4)^2  (y5)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from center to vertex (pick one) is 2 units, yes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so a = 2 where \[\Large \frac{(xh)^2}{a^2}  \frac{(yk)^2}{b^2} = 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1'a' corresponds to the x portion because the hyperbola opens along the x axis direction (ie horizontally)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1c = 3 because it is 3 units from the center to either focus use a^2 + b^2 = c^2 to find b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1actually you don't need to solve for b you can stop at b^2 and that would be fine too
