For a hyperbola, ,

eccentricity =

the foci are at a and -a, so distance between the two foci is 2a.

So now you know , simply put these values into the standard equation for a parabola.

Actually, technically speaking the answer should be where (f,g) is the centre, because any translation will not affect the eccentricity or distance between the foci. - Dec 30th 2008, 01:13 AMvarunnayuduwhat is the eq..
what is the eq ............(Happy)

i need to check ..........(Smirk) - Dec 30th 2008, 01:16 AMmr fantastic
