Find the vertices of the equation: -4x^2 + y^2 -2y = 3

Enter your answer as a list of pairs separated by commas.

I thought the answer was (0,4), and (0,-2) but I was incorrect. Please help!

Using the answer to your other question, the equation of the hyperbola was found to be

(y - 1)^2 - (x - 0)^2

________ ________ = 1

4 1

The center is (0, 1) = (h, k)

a = sqrt (4) = 2

The vertices are given by

(h, k+a) and (h, k - a) =

(0, 1 + 2) and (0, 1 - 2) =

(0, 3) and (0, -1)
