Hints: 1. The equations represent a hyperbola centred at (1,1). 2. The hyperbola has the equation of the form (y/a)^2-(x/b)^2=1...............(1) so the axis (line joining the two foci) is vertical. 3. With a vertical axis, the slope of the asymptotes is \(\pm a/b\). 4. So, if you transform the given equation to form (1) above, then you can find a and b, from which you can determine the slope a/b. Note that you can keep the (y-1)^2 and (x-1)^2 intact, since they simply represent a translation of the centre of the hyperbola, and will not change the slope of the asymptotes.
