    \[\frac{y-xy'}{y^2}=\frac{xy'-y}{x^2}\] I would clear the fractions first.

    Multiply both sides by x^2y^2.

    \[x^2y^2 \frac{y-xy'}{y^2}=x^2y^2\frac{xy'-y}{x^2}\] You see that we can write this without the fractional style now, right?

    yes by calcelling the \[y ^{2} x^{2}\] on each side respectively \[x^{2}(y-xy^1)+y^2(xy^1-y)\] then?

    Distribute. Put y' terms on one side and the other non-y' terms on the other side Then factor y' out. The divide by whatever is being multiplied by y'.

    After I multiply I got\[x^2y-x^3y^\prime =xy^2y^\prime-y^3\]

    Right. Continue. Put y' terms together on one side and then non-y' terms on the other.

    \[x^2y+y^3=xy^2y^\prime + x^3 y^\prime\]

    Factor the y' out on that one side.

    Divide both sides by what y' is being multiplied by.

    \[x^2y+y^3/xy^2+x^3\]=\[y^\prime\]

    \[y'=\frac{x^2y+y^3}{xy^2+x^3} =\frac{y(x^2+y^2)}{x(y^2+x^2)}\] Anything cancel?

    Now instead of starting the way you guys did at the beginning. I think @hartnn would like to show you a easier way.

    hey 2pie since we have x/y = y/x can we say x^2 = y^2 ?

    I think the slope can be simplified even more by the way when you guys are done. :)

    and then we can differentiate x^2=y^2 to get 2x =2y dy/dx can you isolaye dy/dx from this ?

    yes by dividing 2y on both sides

    and what would u get finally ? as dy/dx ?

    dy/dx = x/y

    And recall from your initial equation y/x=x/y

    Now another way... x^2=y^2 or x^2-y^2=0 or (x-y)(x+y)=0 or x-y=0 or x+y=0 or y=x or y=-x If y=x, then y'=1 If y=-x, then y'=-1
