    Hyperbolas- Please check my answers

    Find the vertices and locate the foci for the hyperbola whose equation is given.

    (x^2)/(81) - (y^2)/(4)=1

    I got:
    vertices: (-9,0), (9,0)
    foci: (- squareroot 85, 0), (squareroot 85,0)

    (y^2)/(100) - (x^2)/(16)=1

    I got:
    vertices: (0,-10), (0,10)
    foci: (0, -2 squareroot 29), (0, 2 squareroot 29)

    Match the equation to the graph.

    (x^2)/(16) - (y^2)/(9)=1

    I got:


    (y^2)/(16) - (x^2)/(4)=1

    I got:


    Find the standard form of the equation of the hyperbola satisfying the given conditions.

    Foci: (-10, 0), (10, 0); vertices: (-5, 0), (5, 0)
    I got: (x^2)/(25) - (y^2)/(75)=1

    Foci: (0, -9), (0, 9); vertices: (0, -3), (0, 3)
    I got: (y^2)/(9) - (x^2)/(72)=1

    Use vertices and asymptotes to graph the hyperbola. Find the equations of the asymptotes.

    (x^2)/(9) - (y^2)/(4)=1
    I got:


    (y^2)/(9) - (x^2)/(36)=1
    I got:


    Find the location of the center, vertices, and foci for the hyperbola described by the equation.

    ((x-4)^2)/(4) - ((y+4)^2)/(9)=1

    I got: Center: (4, -4); Vertices: (2, -4) and (6, -4); Foci:4 -squareroot 13,-4) and (4 +squareroot 13, -4)

    ((y+3)^2)/(9) - ((x+4)^2)/(36)=1

    I got: Center: (-4, -3); Vertices: (-4, -6) and (-4, 0); Foci: (-4, -3 - 3 squareroot 5) and (-4, -3 + 3 squareroot 5)

    I got tired of reviewing after the first couple of pages. They look fine. Why do you doubt? Go forth with confidence.

    I doubt because I am taking math online and I have to pass.
