I have a graph of a hyperbola where the vertices are at (-3,0) and (3,0) and the center is (0,0). It needs to be written in a standard form

(x-h)/ a2 - (y-k)/ b2

Mark M.

Since the center is (0, 0), h = k = 0.  The distance from the center to either vertex is a.  So, a = 3.  To find b, we need further information.  Did you leave something out?
