let us consider the case of ellipse with x and y axes as their axes

eq. is x^{2}/a^{2} + y^{2}/b^{2}= 1

on differentiating we get 2x/a^{2} + 2yy^{'}/b^{2 }= 0 y'is first differential

so yy^{'}/x = -b^{2}/a^{2}

again differentiate and get answer.

You should remember that you should differentiate as many times as the number of constants.

for ex. in the case of parabola only first diffrentiation is sufficient.

now complete it for all conics

**Answer Strategies and trick by Manish sir**(it will help you to solve it by yourself)

x=rcosθ and y=rsinθ

so dx=-rsinθdθ and dy = rcosθdθ

so p = -cotθ

so given eq. will become x-cotθy = (x-y)cosecθ

on putting values of x and y we get

0 = r(cosθ-sinθ)/sinθ

so tanθ = 1 so θ = nπ+π/4

so x = rcos(nπ+π/4) and y = rsin(nπ+π/4)

y^{2}= 4a(x+a)

so 2yy^{'} = 4a so a = yy^{'}/2

on putting a we get y^{2}= 4yy^{'}/2(x+yy^{'}/2)

so y^{2} = yy^{'} (2x+yy^{'}) or y = 2xy^{'} + yy^{'2} (1)

now on putting -1/y^{'} in the place of y^{'}

we get y^{2} = -y/y^{'}[2x-y/y^{'}]

so -yy^{'2} = 2xy^{'} - y (2)

similarity of (1) and (2) shows that the given curve is self orthogonal

Solve: dy/dx =[x√(x^2-1) +y]/(√x^2-1)
