Dec 9, 2015

Vertical Hyperbola, center are $\left(0 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

It's a vertical hyperbola, because

1) There is a minus between 2 variables
2) Both variables are square
3) Equation equal to 1
4) if $y$ is positive, $x$ is negative, vertical hyperbola like this
graph{(y^2)/9 - (x^2)/16 = 1 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
