Notes:
hyperbola: the difference of the distances from any point on a hyperbola to each focus is constant and equal to the transverse axis 2a2a.
ellipse: the sum of the distances from any point on an ellipse to each focus is constant and equal to the major axis 2a2a.

c=a2b2c= \sqrt{a^2 - b^2} cc: distance from the center to a focus

e=cae= \frac{c}{a} ee: eccentricity; the larger the value of ee, the straighter the hyperbola
