I find that a = 2(verticies) and c = 3(foci)

so b= √5 **<--- bē = 5**

Compare with your equation of the hyperbola!

Plugging everything back in the standard equation I got

((x^2)/4) - (((y-1)^2)/25) = 1 **<--- unfortunately wrong. See above.**

Can someone please confirm that my answer is correct. Thanks!
