Answer:

Asymptotes: y = 0 and x = 0.

Explanation:

x y = #c^2# represents a rectangular hyperbola .
The axis is y = x.
the asymptotes are the axes of coordinates.
The two branches are in the 1st and 3rd quadrants.
Here, c = #sqrt3#
Vertices are #(sqrt3, sqrt3) and (-sqrt3, -sqrt3)#
The eccentricity of a rectangular hyperbola is #sqrt2#.
The foci are #(sqrt6, sqrt6) and(-sqrt6, -sqrt6)#(
