Find the length of latus rectum for the hyperbola $\large\frac{x^2}{36}-\frac{y^2}{16}$$=1$?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;5.33\\(b)\;6.33\\(c)\;7.33\\(d)\;8.33\end{array}$

1 Answer

Length of latus rectum =$\large\frac{2b^2}{a}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{2\times 16}{6}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{32}{6}$
$\Rightarrow 5.33$
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
