## Question

The product of the lengths of perpendicular drawn from any point on the hyperbola *x*^{2} – 2*y*^{2} – 2 = 0 to its asymptotes is

### Solution

2/3

We have,

We know that the product of the lengths of perpendicular from any point on the hyperbola to its asymptotes is

Here, *a*^{2} = 2 and *b*^{2} = 1.

So, required product,

.
