Rectangular hyperbolas Watch
Maybe an explanation on the following rectangular hyperbola might help:
x = at, y = a/t
Now what does a and t stand for?
Could you help with a real example?
The independant parameter here is t, and the dependant variables are x and y. If you re-write the equations with t as the subject you get:
Since t=t, this gives:
a/y=x/a => xy=a²
This is the equation of a type of rectangular hyperbola. (A rectangular hyperbola is a curve with perpendicular asymptotes, but you don't have to know this for P3.)
