Graphing a transformed hyperbola combines the skills of graphing hyperbolas and graphing transformations. With hyperbola graphs, we use the formula a^2 + b^2 = c^2 to determine the foci and y= + or - (a/b)x to determine the asymptotes. When transforming hyperbola graphs, we find the center of the graph and then graph accordingly.
