 Question 90317This question is from textbook Elementary and Intermediate Algebra : How would you graph the hyperbola ?? And does the center of the hyperbola HAVE to be on (0,0)? Because I worked it out the best that I could, and I got the center at (2,0) I'm thinking that I did something wrong, though. Could you please help? ThanksThis question is from textbook Elementary and Intermediate Algebra Found 2 solutions by stanbon, Earlsdon:Answer by stanbon(57283)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The x-intercepts are at (2,0), (-2,0) The center (which is not a point on the hyperbola) is (0,0) Cheers, Stan H. Answer by Earlsdon(6287)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Write your equation in the standard form for a hyperbola with the center at (0, 0) and the vertices on the x-axis.: Divide both sides by 4. Rewrite as: Let's see what the graph looks like! The center is at (0, 0) and the assymptotes are: and or, in this case: and
