Exploring shapes of a hyperbola

This applet allows you to explore how the defining elements of a hyperbola influence its shape. A hyperbola with focal points A and B and its asymptotes are shown. You can drag the foci and you can use the "diff" slider to change the focal difference (the difference of distances between a point on the hyperbola and the foci). Use the applet to answer the questions below.
