Dear student,

Please post one question at a time...

The tangent coordinate = (x1, 0) and (0, y1)

slope of tangent = y1/-x1 = -y1/x1

The normal coordinates = (x2, 0) and (0, y2)

slope of normal = y2 /-x2 = -y2/x2

since tangent and normal or perpendicular, the product of their slopes = -1

-(y1/x1)*(-y2/x2) = -1

y1y2 = -x1x2

x1x2 + y1y2 = 0
