find the coordinates of the point on the curve xy = 10 in the first quadrant such that the normal line passes through the origin

Did you sketch the curve?
Did you notice the nice symmetry?
The normal clearly must be the line y = x
and must intersect at (√10 , √10)
so the equation of the line is y = x
