### Orthogonal trajectories of a family of curves.

I need to find the orthogonal trajectories of the family of curves, y = 1/(x+c) where k is an arbitrary constant. So far, I had figured on c = (1/y) - x m1 = -1/(x^2 + (1/y) - x) m2 = x^2 + (1/y) - x I don't know how to figure beyond that. Probably because those were calculated wrong. Please show me how it's done. Tha
