Sorry to be constantly asking for help. But I think this will be the last in a while.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

During my math's class, I asked my teacher why the hyperbola was named liked that. She didn't answer me and ordered me to make a presentation about it. I have done some research work but I would like to make an historical introduction but I was unsucessful to find information about it. If you could help me... you know, thanks. :tongue:

Good sites I have found so far:
