Example 14 Find the coordinates of the foci and the vertices, the eccentricity, the length of the latus rectum of the hyperbolas: (i) x2/9 − y2/16 = 1, The given equation is 𝑥2/9 − 𝑦2/16 = 1 The above equation is of the form 𝑥2/𝑎2 − 𝑦2/𝑏2 = 1 Comparing (1) & (2) a2 = 9 a = 3 & b2 = 16 b = 4 Also, c2 = a2 + b2 c2 = 9 + 16 c2 = 25 c = 5 So, Co-ordinate of foci = (±c, 0) = (±5, 0) Thus, Co-ordinate of foci are (5, 0) & (−5, 0) Vertices = (±a, 0) = (±3, 0) Thus, Vertices are (3, 0) & (−3, 0) Eccentricity e = 𝑐/𝑎 = 𝟓/𝟑 Latus rectum = 2𝑏2/𝑎 = (2 × 16)/3 = 𝟑𝟐/𝟑
