The above equations are referred to as the canonical form of the hyperbolic equation: both equations are transformations of the simple form

Instead of being defined by an equation, a hyperbola can be described by it’s geometrical properties.

We draw two vertical linesandand plot two points, called fociandas shown above. The locus of the parabola is defined bywhere e is the eccentricity,
