The equation is xy = 8.

The descriptions that I KNOW are possible are:

A. Parabola with axis x = 0

B. Circle with center (2,-1)

C. Hyperbola with axes as asymptotes

F. Line with slope 3/2

G. Parabola with vertex (2,-1)

H. Circle with center (0,0), radius 4

Okay, I'm pretty sure B and H can be ruled out because the equation doesn't look like that of an equation for a circle. However, I'm not so sure for the others. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
