# What is the transverse axis of a hyperbola?

The transverse axis of a hyperbola is the line that contains the two vertices and the two focuses.

In this example (hyperbola of equation ##x^2/2-y^2/4=1##), the transverse axis is the **X-Axis** .

In this example (hyperbola of equation ##x^2/2-y^2/4=-1##), the transverse axis is the **Y-Axis** .
