**algebra-Please recheck this**

I think I did the vertices and foci incorrect This is a verticl hyperbola, correct? So formula for vertices would be (h, k+-a)=(8,2+-6)=(8,8) (8,-4) Foci should be c^2 = a^2 + b^2 8^2 + 2^2 = 64+36 c=10 foci=(8,2+-10) (8,-8) (8,12)

I'm sorry the computer jammed and I couldn't do anything- the problem is List the center, vertices, and foci of hyberbola for following equation: (y-2)^2/36 - (x-8)^2/64 = 1 b=6 a=8 Center(8,2) Vertices=(h,k+b) (h,k-b)=(8,8) (8,-4) Foci =(h +-c,k) c^2 = a^2 + b^2 c^2...
