# Finding the Standard Equation of a Hyperbola In Exercises 41-48, find the standard form of the equation of the hyperbola with the given characteristics. Vertices: ( 2,   ±3 ) Foci: ( 2 ,   ± 5 )

To determine

To calculate: The equation of hyperbola with the vertices is (2,±3) and foci is (2,±5).

Explanation

Given:

The characteristics of a hyperbola are: vertices is (2,Â±3) and foci is (2,Â±5).

Formula used:

The standard equation of parabola is, (yâˆ’k)2a2âˆ’(xâˆ’h)2b2=1.

Calculation:

Since the given equation has y changing vertices in it.

Therefore, itâ€™s a hyperbola of the second type (where the transverse axis is the yâˆ’axis).

Now, the mid-point of both the vertices gives us the centre of the hyperbola is (2,0) and the distance from centre to the vertex is 3.

Therefore, a2=9.

Now the standard equation of hyperbola with (h,k) as centre a and b as conjugate and

transverse axis is given by;

(yâˆ’k)2
