Oct 06, 2021 · The y -value is represented by the distance from the origin to the top, which is given as 79.6 meters. Therefore, x2 a2 − y2 b2 = 1 Standard form of horizontal hyperbola. b2 = y2 x2 a2 − 1 Isolate b2 = (79.6)2 (36)2 900 − 1 Substitute for a2, x, and y ≈ 14400.3636 Round to four decimal places.
