Hyperbola – a set of points in a plane whose difference of the distances from two fixed points is a constant. Section 7.4 – The Hyperbola

Q Hyperbola – a set of points in a plane whose difference of the distances from two fixed points is a constant. 

Section 7.4 – The Hyperbola Transverse axis – the line that contains the foci and goes through the center of the hyperbola. Conjugate axis – the line that is perpendicular to the transverse axis and goes through the center of the hyperbola. Conjugate axis Center – the midpoint of the line segment between the two foci. Center 
