The vertices are

The foci are

the asymptotes are

#### Explanation:

Looking at the equation, this is an up-down hyperbola

and, we compare to the standard equation

The center is

The vertices are

The slopes of the asymptotes are

The equations of the asymptotes are

The equations of the asymptotes are

To calculate the foci, we need

The foci are

And the foci are
