Deducing formula for hyperbola from asymptotes
I have some data which I want to fit a hyperbola to, but i do not know how to?!?!
My exact question would be: If i know the asymptotes, can i construct a hyperbola which fits?
I am using cartesian coordinates, and switching to another system is out of the question.
Below is picture illustrating the data:
Problem not so much "fitting" as "finding form of formula"
Thnx for the reply. :).. The problem is not fitting the data, it's figuring out a hyperbola which follows the asymptotes.

So what i really need to know is a cartesian method of deducing the formula for a hyperbola based on the asymptotes (Worried)
