Because the x term is negative, we know that the hyperbola opens vertically; the type of hyperbola is called a vertical transverse axis type; its standard form is:

The center of this type is the point

The vertices are the points

The foci of this are are the points

Rewrite the given equation in the form of equation [1]:

he center of this type is the point

The vertices are the points

The foci of this are are the points
