Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the first answer choice is correct because the vertices (major axis) are on the xaxis and the covertices (minor axis) are on the yaxis. And the major axis is always the one that's positive in hyperbolas; so 7^2=49 goes under x^2 and 4^2=16 goes under y^2 x^2 _ y^2   49 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct center Is (0,0) a=7 b=4 eq. of hyperbola is \[\frac{ x^2 }{ a^2 }\frac{ y^2 }{ b^2 }=1\]
