    Put Equation in Standard Hyperbola form

    Put Equation in Standard Hyperbola form-2011-07-24_01-54-32_654.jpgPut Equation in Standard Hyperbola form-2011-07-24_01-54-32_654.png

    I can get it in the right form, but it still doesn't match any of the choices. Does anyone see what I'm doing wrong? (I posted pics because I didn't feel like typing all the LaTeX code...)

    See attachment.


    (I posted an image because I don't like to do all the Latex work for you.)

    I didn't complete the correction. That's for you.

    In the second line of your first pic, it should be 25(x^2+2x)-4(y^2+6y)=111 instead of 25(x^2+2x)-(-4)(y^2+6y)=111 .


    Edited: Sorry, I didn't see earboth's post.
