A hyperbola, like an ellipse, has an a and b value corresponding to the semi-major and semi-minor axes.

Center the hyperbola at the origin and it's focal axis is parallel to the x-axis.

We can find b by using

c is the distance of the foci from the origin and a is the distance of the vertex from the origin. These are given. Use those to find b.

Then, plug those values into the equation of a hyperbola
