    (x - 24) (y - 36) = 240

    Divide both sides by (x - 24) to get

    y - 36 = 240 / (x - 24)

    Add 36 to both sides to get

    y = 240/(x - 24) + 36

    This is indeed a hyperbola, but what you have to calculate are the x and y asymptotes.

    To solve for the x-asymptote, equate the denominator of the fraction to 0 (after all, this is where the function is undefined). Thus, x - 24 = 0, which implies x = 24, which is our vertical asymptote.

    To solve for the y-asymptote, all you have to do is look at the number added to the fraction. In this case, it's 36. So y = 36 is the horizontal asymptote.

    All you have to do is solve the y and x intercepts and then the hyperbola will be graphable.

    (x-24) (y-36) = 240

    (y-36) = 240/(x-24)

    y = 240/(x-24) + 36

    x > 24 or x < 24

    y correspond with x's value.

    There is more than 1 solution.

    y-36=240/[x-24]

    y=240/[x-24]+36

    it is a curve of the type

    y=1/x

    This is not a hyperbola whose

    equation is of the type

    [x-xo]^2/a^2-[y-yo]^2/b^2=1

    It is not right to say ( X-24 ) (y-36)=240

    because u have too many answers

    you have to add another one like x +5y=320

    thanks

    x=28 and y=96

    This is a question or a statement?

    I don't think this is the equation of a parabola. A parabolic function is of the form:

    (x-a)^2 - (y-b)^2 = c^2

    Y = +-6.67

    X = +-10

    Was that your question?
