Here is a question that I am stumped on.

 

I put the equation into Desmos and it really is two straight lines. frown

The angle between them appears to be always 90 degrees.

------------------------------------------------------

 

What is the equation of the two straight lines represented by the equation

\(ab (x^2-y^2) + (a^2-b^2)xy=0\)

 

Also, find the angle between them?  

 

---------------------------------------------------------------

 

From the graph I can see that the lines are   y=mx  and y=-x/m

 

But how do I rearrange to get this?
