HyperbolaConsider the equations below and complete the following:
Before completing any calculations, consider the equation and write down an educated guess
as to which type of conic section is represented. Explain briefly how you made your prediction.
Complete the square to rearrange each equation into standard form and identify the conic
section.
Compare the equation in standard form to the original version. Look closely at the coefficients of
each term (specifically which terms are positive or negative). Is there anything you notice that is
similar between the two equations? How can this help you to identify conic sections that are not
in standard form?
a. x² + y² + 6x - 4y - 15 = 0
b. 49x² + 196x + 4y² - 40y + 100 = 0

HyperbolaA telescope contains both a parabolic mirror and a hyperbolic mirror. They share focus F₁, which is 42 feet above the vertex of the parabola. The hyperbola's second focus F2 is 6 ft above the parabola's vertex. The vertex of the hyperbolic mirror is 3 ft below F₁. Find the equation of the hyperbola if the center is at the origin of a coordinate system and the foci are on the y-axis. Complete the equation.
