    Eqn. of hyperbola:
    {(y+5)^2/16} - {x^2/9} = 1 .......(1)
    This Eqn. Can be written interms of transformed axes (X,Y) as,
    Y^2/4^2 - X^2/3^2 = 1 ........(2)
    Y = y+5; and X = x

    compare Eqn. ...

    Solution Summary

    An hyperbola is sketched. The center, vertex and foci are calculated and depicted on the graph.
