let's complete the square ...

4x^2 + 56x - (y^2 - 2y ) = -195

4(x^2 + 14x + **49**) - (y^2 - 2y + **1**) = -195 + 4(49) - 1

4(x+7)^2 - (y-1)^2 = 0

ahh, we have a degenerated hyperbola

the hyperbola has degenerated into its asymtotes

notice we have a difference of squares = 0

so

2(x+7) + (y-1) = 0 or 2(x+7) - (y-1) = 0

2x + 14 + y - 1 = 0 or 2x + 14 - y + 1 = 0

2x + y = -13 or 2x - y = -15

the "centre" would be the intersection of the two lines.
