## What is the formula to find foci?

Each ellipse has two foci (plural of focus) as shown in the picture here: As you can see, c is the distance from the center to a focus.

We can find the value of c by using the formula c2 = a2 – b2.

Notice that this formula has a negative sign, not a positive sign like the formula for a hyperbola.

## What is the formula for a hyperbola?

c2 = a2 + b2. Every hyperbola has two asymptotes. A hyperbola with a horizontal transverse axis and center at (h, k) has one asymptote with equation y = k + (x – h) and the other with equation y = k – (x – h).
