    You had it right the first time on the first line when you had the RHS as k instead of 0.

    Meaning last line should be 8+k on the RHS and you want this to be 1 because there are only translations involved.

    P.S. This is not the radius. It doesn't make sense to talk of the radius when you're working with a hyperbola.
