 Question 596117: Find the center of hyperbola defined by (x+3)^/64 - (y+9)^/25 = 1Answer by jsmallt9(3296)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The general form for a hyperbola is: (horizontally-oriented) or (vertically-oriented) The center of the hyperbola, in both cases, is the point (h, k) Except for the +'s in your numerators, your equation is already in this form. All you have to do is rewrite the additions as equivalent subtractions: This makes the center: (-3, -9)
