For the following exercises, assume an object enters our solar system and we want to graph its path on a coordinate system with the sun at the origin and the x-axis as the axis of symmetry for the object's path. Give the equation of the flight path of each object using the given information.

The object enters along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=x-2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and passes within 1 au (astronomical unit) of the sun at its closest approach, so that the sun is one focus of the hyperbola. It then departs the solar system along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=-x+2.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$

The object enters along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=2x-2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and passes within 0.5 au of the sun at its closest approach, so the sun is one focus of the hyperbola. It then departs the solar system along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=-2x+2.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$

$\frac{{\left(x-1\right)}^{2}}{0.25}-\frac{{y}^{2}}{0.75}=1$

The object enters along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=0.5x+2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and passes within 1 au of the sun at its closest approach, so the sun is one focus of the hyperbola. It then departs the solar system along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=-0.5x-2.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$

The object enters along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=\frac{1}{3}x-1\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and passes within 1 au of the sun at its closest approach, so the sun is one focus of the hyperbola. It then departs the solar system along a path approximated by the line

The object It enters along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=3x-9\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and passes within 1 au of the sun at its closest approach, so the sun is one focus of the hyperbola. It then departs the solar system along a path approximated by the line $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=-3x+9.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$

A guy wire for a suspension bridge runs from the ground diagonally to the top of the closest pylon to make a triangle. We can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of guy wire needed. The square of the distance between the wire on the ground and the pylon on the ground is 90,000 feet. The square of the height of the pylon is 160,000 feet. So, the length of the guy wire can be found by evaluating √(90000+160000). What is the length of the guy wire?
