    Solve each equation for y.

    Assign x some arbitrary values ( pos. and neg) and see what the corresponging y is. Plot the points on the coordinate plane.

    How much do you know about hyperbolas? How much do you need to know about hyperbolas?

    Here are the equations in standard hyperbola form:

    \frac{x^2}{16}-\frac{y^2}{9}=1

    \frac{x^2}{25}-\frac{y^2}{4}=1

    See here: Hyperbolas
