I can not figure out a solution to this problem.
What kind of surfaces presents this equation:

z=px^2/(a^2) + qy^2/(b^2)

when signs p and q gets values 1 and -1.

And how I can draw an example each of appearable type of surface. Is
it possible to draw an example with Mathematica?

I hope you understand my question, and I really hope, that someone
could answer to my question!! And the sooner the better...
