Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large \frac{(xh)^2}{a^2}\frac{(yk)^2}{b^2}=1\] (h,k) is the center a = half of the horizontal length of the box b = half of the vertical length of the box hyperbola looks like this dw:1435720969381:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a^2 and b^2 36 and 64

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah a = 6 and b = 8 so a^2 = 36 and b^2 = 64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Final equation (x+5)^2/36  (y1)^2/64 = 1
