Distance between center and the vertex is a, and equation of asymptote is y = (a/b)x.
Find a and b from the given information.
So the equation of the hyperbola is
Well, actually, no. If the center is at , the distance from the center to a vertex is a, and the equation of the asymptote is y= (b/a)x, the equation of the hyperbola is
