(((x^2)/2)-(x/sqrt 2)-(y^2/2)-(3y/sqrt 2) +3=0 in standard form of hyperbola

Here's a little more about Melody's answer......

This is a hyperbola....the "minus" sign between the first two terms tells us this.. it also opens "upward and downward"........this is easy to spot because the variable that comes first - in this case, "y' - will tell us which axis the hyperbola intersects

As in all conic forms, the center is found at (1/√2, -3/√2)

The transverse axis is given by the equation ....x = 1/√2.......the focal points lie on this line and are located at (1/√2, -3/√2 ± √[a^{2} + b^{2}]) = (1/√2, -3/√2 ± 10√2)

And the asymptotes are given by .... y = ±(a/b)(x - h) + k =

±(10/10)(x - 1/√2) - 3/√2 = ± (x - 1/√2) - 3/√2

Here's a graph that puts all this together.......https://www.desmos.com/calculator/pskcr0hrmy

$$\\\frac{x^2}{2}-\frac{x}{\sqrt2}-\frac{y^2}{2}-\frac{3y}{\sqrt 2} +3=0\\\\

x^2-\sqrt2\;x-y^2-3\sqrt2\;y +6=0\\\\

\left[x^2-\sqrt2\;x+(\frac{\sqrt2}{2})^2\right]-\left[y^2+3\sqrt2\;y+(\frac{3\sqrt2}{2})^2\right]=-6+(\frac{\sqrt2}{2})^2-(\frac{3\sqrt2}{2})^2\right\\\\

\left[x^2-\sqrt2\;x+\frac{1}{2}\right]-\left[y^2+3\sqrt2\;y+\frac{9}{2}\right]=-6+\frac{1}{2}-\frac{9}{2}\\\\

\left[x^2-\sqrt2\;x+\frac{1}{2}\right]-\left[y^2+3\sqrt2\;y+\frac{9}{2}\right]=-10\\\\

\left[(x-\frac{1}{\sqrt2})^2\right]-\left[(y+\frac{3}{\sqrt2})^2\right]=-10\\\\

\left[\frac{(y+\frac{3}{\sqrt2})^2}{10}\right]-\left[\frac{(x-\frac{1}{\sqrt2})^2}{10}\right]=1\\\\$$

Here is the graph
