The foci of a hyperbola coincide with the foci of the ellipse $\large\frac{x^2}{25}+\frac{y^2}{9}$$=1$.Find the equation of the hyperbola if its ecentricity is 3?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\large\frac{x^2}{1}-\frac{y^2}{8}=\frac{16}{9}\\(b)\;\large\frac{x^2}{3}-\frac{y^2}{4}=\frac{15}{9}\\(c)\;x^2-y^2=9\\(d)\;\text{None of these}\end{array}$

$\Rightarrow \sqrt{1-\large\frac{9}{25}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{4}{5}$
Foci of ellipse are $(\pm ae,0)$ i.e $(\pm 4,0)$
Let 'e' be the ecentricity of the required hyperbola and its equation be
The co-ordinate of foci are $(\pm Ae',0)$
$(A\times e')=4$
$A\times 3=4$
$B^2=\large\frac{16\times 8}{9}$
Substituting the value of A & B we get the equation of hyperbola
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
