1. 1. Working With Hyperbolas (you have to know where to look) urban geometry hyperbolas by ﬂickr user johncarney
2. 2. The Standard Form for the Equation of a Hyperbola Horizontal Orientation Vertical Orientation Differences Similarities • numerators have different • have the same terms orientation • both equal 1 • numerators have • both are differences opposite signs • both have same denominators • both have square binomials • (h, k) indicates center
3. 3. The Anatomy of The Hyperbola P B1 b c F F2 a 1 A 1 O c A2 B2 O is the centre, it has coordinates (h, k). A1A2 is the length of the B1 B2 is the length of the transverse axis. It's length is 2a. conjugate axis. It's length is 2b. PF1 & PF 2 are the focal F 1 & F 2 are called the foci. They radii of the hyperbola. are c units from the centre. OA1 = OA2 is the length of the A1 & A 2 are called the semitransverse axis with length a. vertices of the hyperbola. OB1 = OB2 is the length of the B 1 & B 2 are called the endpoints semiconjugate axis with length b. of the conjugate axis.
