Solution 11765: Graphing a Hyperbola on a TI Graphing Calculator.
How do I graph a hyperbola on a TI graphing calculator?
To graph a hyperbola, the hyperbolic equation will need to be solved for y, then each branch will be entered as functions in the y= editor.
The generic form of a hyperbola is as follows:
x^2/a^2 - y^2/b^2 = 1
Setting a=1 and b =1, then solving for y returns:
y= v(x-1) and y= -v(x-1)
Please see the TI Graphing family guidebooks for additional information.
Users of the TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus Family of calculators can take advantage of the free Conic Graphing App, which provides a simple way to graph the four conic shapes.
