vertices:(2,3)(2,-3)

Foci:(2,5)(2,-5)

I used the midpoint formula to find the center and I came up with (2,0). I just dont know how to find a and b.

**Reiny**, Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at 4:54pmdid you realize that your hyperbola has a vertical major axis?

a = 3

also in any hypebola c^2 = a^2 + b^2

25 = 9 + b^2

b^2 = 16

(x-2)^2/9 - (y^2/16 = -1
