 T O P I C    R E V I E W T-Maree Posted - 08/30/2012 : 20:57:27 A hyperbola that passes through the point (1, 3) has horizontal asymptote y = -1 and vertical asymptote x = 2. (a) Find its equation. Hint: The equation of a hyperbola can be written in the form y = c/x-a + b (b) Use your equation to find the x- and y-intercepts. (c) Draw the graph of your hyperbola clearly labelling its x- and y-intercepts, and asymptotes. You may draw your graph by hand or with computer software. 1   L A T E S T    R E P L I E S    (Newest First) royhaas Posted - 08/31/2012 : 08:07:11 Start by using the hint given and the definition of asymptotes.
