Find an equation for the hyperbola.
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 don't know how to find a and b.

Reiny,
did 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
(x2)^2/9  (y^2/16 = 1
