As we learnt in 

 

Slope of a line -

If \Theta is the angle at which a straight line is inclined to a positive direction of x-axis, then the slope is defined by

m= \tan \Theta.

- wherein

 

 my^{2}+(1-m)^{2}xy-mx^{2}=0

y(my+x)-mx(my+x)=0

(y-mx)(my+x)=0

xy=0\:\:\:\:is\ x=0 \:\:\:\:and\:\:\:\:y=0

So slope of line equally inclined is:

\Theta= \frac{\pi}{4}

\tan \Theta=1
