Hello at Math Group!

Unfortunately, I am not very skilled with Mathematica, and have been 
assigned a few problems for Calculus 3.  I'm been working on these for 
hours and I'm just absolutely stumped on the last two.  None of my 
classmates have been able to solve it either, so I was searching for 
something to help me and I found you!  This assignment is due tomorrow, 
and so I guess I'm kind of just keeping my fingers crossed that you guys 
may be reading this at 12:30 am.

I really hope this is like a super-easy problem for you...

The problems are:

Graph the hyperboloid of one-sheet:  (x^2 / 16) + (y^2 / 4) - z^2 = 1

Graph the hyperboloid of "one-sheet" (it's written as one sheet on the 
page, but based on the equation I believe that's just a typo and it's of 
two-sheets):  (x^2 / 16) - (y^2 / 4) - z^2 = 1

Please please someone help me!!!
