Do you know how to find the asymptotes of a hyperbola with this equation?
[x^2]/4  [y^2]/9 = 1
Hint: To express this in the format x^2/a^2  y^2/b^2 = 1, what are the values of a and b? How can a and b be used to find the equations of the asymptotes?
Then, you'd have to translate (slide) the hyperbola to get the one you described. I think left 3 units and up 1 unit. So you'd have to rewrite the equations of the asymptotes you found after they gets hifted over and up.
