Find the equation of the hyperbola satisfying the give conditions: Vertices (0, ±5), foci (0, ±8)
Vertices (0, ±5), foci (0, ±8)
Here, the vertices are on the y-axis.
Therefore, the equation of the hyperbola is of the form `y^2/a^2 - x^2/b^2 = 1`.
Since the vertices are (0, ±5), a = 5.
Since the foci are (0, ±8), c = 8.
We know that a2 + b2 = c2.
