I need help graphing a hyperbola not in standard form. I don't understand how to use the squaring method (I'm pretty sure we haven't learned that yet). The equation is 4y^2 - 9x^2 = 1.

The standard form of a hyperbola is
so we are really close to what we need
we need to get the four into the denominator some how? hmmm..
lets try an experiment....
using this one the above we get
Now we just need to write them as squares so we get
