#### Answer

Hyperbola

#### Work Step by Step

The difference between the equation of an ellipse and a hyperbola is the following:
Ellipse formula: $\frac{x^2}{a}+\frac{y^2}{b} = 1$
Hyperbola formula: $\frac{x^2}{a}-\frac{y^2}{b} = 1$
The ellipse formula has two positive terms while the hyperbola formula has one positive term and one negative term.
Using this observation, we get this equation to be a hyperbola
