Write the equation of a hyperbola with a center at (-5, -3), vertices at (-5, -5) and (-5, -1) and co-vertices at (-11, -3) and (1, -3).

  • EASY MATH -

    distance from centre (-5,-3) to vertex (-5,-1) is 2
    so a = 2
    distance from (-5,-3) to (1,-3) is 6,
    so b=6

    equation:

    (x+5)^2 / 4 - (y+3)^2 / 36 = -1
