I am having trouble with several problems:
1) Find the coordinates of the center, foci, and the vertices, and the equations of the asymptotes of the graph of the equation (x+1)^2/2 - y^2/8 =1
2) Write the standard form of the equation of the circle that is tangent to x= -2 and has its center at (2,-4).
Any help with these problems would be great!!
