they said, Remember, 62 we have you in the hyper bola excess squad by four minus y squared. But it be a spotty called one is given Fine, Be so that seems towards our perpendicular to each other So isn't or should have been x equal to minus me by X and B by X. In this case, a symptoms will be Why call toe minus B by two X. I call Toby by two weeks. So these are the slopes off the same towers for this has imposed to be perpendicular minus B by two in tow, be by two. Should be minus one because multiplication of store slope is minus one for the life too perpendicular. So this will cancel out be a square will be equal toe for so people were equal to two. Okay, so who is the answer? Well, thank you
