# Equation of the Hyperbola

## Hyperbolas Centered at (0, 0)

### Horizontal Transverse Axis

**F'(−c, 0) and F(c, 0)**

### Vertical Transverse Axis

**F'(0, −c) and F(0, c)**

## Hyperbolas Centered at (x_{0}, y_{0})

### Horizontal Transverse Axis

**F(x _{0}+c, y_{0}) and F'(x_{0}− c, y_{0})**

By removing the denominators, an equation is obtained in the form:

Keep in mind that A and B have opposite signs.

### Vertical Transverse Axis

**F(x _{0}, y_{0}+c) and F'(x_{0}, y_{0}−c)**

### Examples
