It doesn't, but you can show that the limit is 1.

Similarily, two lines of the form ax that have the line y = x as symmetryaxis have a product of slopes equal to 1. What about the xand y axis?

Indeed, but to find the product of 1, isn't used that two perpendicular lines have product of slopes 1? I figured to use a similar argument.
