1. ## Finding the Equation of the Hyperbola

Vertices at (3,4) and (3,8) passing through the point with coordinates (-1,-6)

Thanks

Thanks
From the coordinates of the vertices you can immediately get the coordinates of the centre. Substitute this into the standard form of the equation. Now substitute (3, 4) and (-1, -6) into the standard form of the equation, get simultaneous equations for the two things you still don't know etc. ....
