    Exclamation Diameter of Hyperbola

    Hi

    What exactly is the diameter of a hyperbola. I tried searching it on the Internet but couldn't find any info.

    It's from this question: Find the length of the diameters of the curve xy = 4 through (4,1).

    Dear xwrathbringerx,

    "A diameter, such as AB, is any line passing through O that intersects the two branches of the hyperbola." (Source: Hyperbola)

    I think now you could continue with your problem!!
