    Hyperbolas

    Im studying the lessons on hyperbolas now and am confused on how the book is determining the location of covertices. It shows no clear way of determining them at all.

    Thanks for pointing all of that out but your information:

    Hyperbola

    The equation of an East-West opening hyperbola can be expressed as



    When in this form, the following hold:

    Center:
    Vertices:
    Asymptotes:
    Foci:
    ........where


    The equation of an North-South opening hyperbola can be expressed as



    When in this form, the following hold:

    Center:
    Vertices:
    Asymptotes:
    Foci:
    ........where
    Does not illustrate how to go about determining the location of covertices.
