Find the equations of the hyperbola satisfying the given conditions Vertices (0, ± 5), foci (0, ± 8)

Asked by Sakshi | 1 year ago |  51

##### Solution :-

Given:

Vertices (0, ± 5) and foci (0, ± 8)

Here, the vertices are on the y-axis.

So, the equation of the hyperbola is of the form $$\dfrac{ y^2}{a^2} – \dfrac{x^2}{b^2} = 1$$

Since, the vertices are (0, ±5), so, a = 5

Since, the foci are (0, ±8), so, c = 8

It is know that, a2 + b2 = c2

So, 52 + b2 = 82

b2 = 64 – 25 = 39

The equation of the hyperbola is $$\dfrac{ y^2}{25} – \dfrac{x^2}{39} = 1$$
