I need to graph the following hyperbola and it has been several years since I have done this. Can you give me a step by step method of how to do this?
x^2 = 8(y-1)^2+1
I do not remember how to determine the foci or the vertices. Please assume that I know nothing other than the given equation. Once I know the method I will be able to use it on other problems.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 11:08 pm ad1c9bdddf
Please see attached document for the solution to the given problem.
Solution: First, rearrange the equation in the form:
(h,k) = coordinates of the center
a = length of major axis (the longer measurement). It is also the distance from the center to the vertices.
b = length of minor axis (the shorter ...
