Fan and Medal!!
There are two fruit trees located at (3,0) and (−3, 0) in the backyard plan. Maurice wants to use these two fruit trees as the focal points for an elliptical flowerbed. Johanna wants to use these two fruit trees as the focal points for some hyperbolic flowerbeds. Create the location of two vertices on the yaxis. Show your work creating the equations for both the horizontal ellipse and the horizontal hyperbola. Include the graph of both equations and the focal points on the same coordinate plane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for this you want x2a2+y2b2=1 and you want a2−b2=32 the easiest way to do that is to use the famous 3−4−5 right triangle and make a=5,b=4 so c=3 and use x252+y242=1 that will make your foci (−3,0) and (3,0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the hyperbola it will look like x2a2−y2b2=1 and you want a2+b2=33 simplest way i can think to do it is to make a2=8,b2=1 and use x28−y2=1 but you have other choices
