 Question 572346: Please help me solve and graph this equation: I tried putting it in standard form and it ended up being a horizontal hyperbola. The standard form was From there I got the center of the hyperbola which is (h,k) or (-2,-4)and I graphed it. Then I looked for the values for a, b, and c. A was or 2.6 as a decimal and B was or 7.9 as a decimal. I graphed A and B as the conjugate and transverse axes. This is where I got confused. The equation for the hyperbola had x on the left and y on the right, meaning it should graph horizontally. But I graphed the axes and the hyperbola came out vertical. Please help me see where I went wrong! Click here to see answer by lwsshak3(6761)
