Write the standard form equation of the hyperbola given the following vertices and perimeter of central rectangle

Vertices (0,-1), (-20, -1)

Perimeter of Central Rectangle = 72

Tom K.

You are asking the same type of question twice. You should ask once and then figure out from the one answer.


Mark H.

I don't know what is meant by the "central rectangle".....regardless, the solution will involve writing an equation for its perimeter--as a function of variables used to define the hyperbola. Once you have the 2 equations, use the standard methods to solve for the parameters. To help visualize, sketch the hyperbola that has the specified vertices.
