    they are not that hard if you know two things a) the center and b) which way it is oriented do you know those?

    I never learned conics probably because all my math teachers happened to not like them either.

    Look up that information from your note. I don't plan to give you the free answer. I guide you instead.

    which you find in your head by either averaging -3 and 7 or -1 and 5

    i am sure you can find the midpoint of either two points if you want a good explanation online with examples, try here http://www.purplemath.com/modules/hyperbola.htm
