#### Explanation:

Given:

Form is a Vertical Transverse axis hyperbola:

Since the larger number in the denominator is over the

Create dashed lines that connect the corners (asymptotes) and extend past the corners. The equations of the asymptotes are:

Let the vertices be at

The hyperbola has two branches. Each branch goes through one vertex and stays inside the asymptotes.
