  1. Hyperbola:
    horizontal hyperbola horizontal hyperbola
    vertical hyperbola vertical hyperbola

    • Graph looks sort of like two mirrored parabolas, with the two "halves" being called "branches".
    • "Vertices" are defined similarly to the way of a "vertex" is defined for a parabola.
    • Just as the focus for a parabola, the two foci for a hyperbola are inside each branch.
    • The line connecting the two vertices is called the "transverse axis".
  1. properties of a hyperbola
    (x64)2+(y+53)2=1 -(\frac{x-6}{4})^2 + (\frac{y+5}{3})^2=1
