**Hint:**To solve this problem we have to make use of a few trigonometric identities. The formulas which we are going to used for this problem are: \[{\cos ^2}A + {\sin ^2}A = 1\],\[1 - {\sin ^2}A = {\cos ^2}A\], \[\sin A - \sin B = 2\cos \dfrac{{A + B}}{2}\sin \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\], \[\cos A + \cos B = 2\cos \dfrac{{A + B}}{2}\cos \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\] and \[\dfrac{{\sin A}}{{\cos A}} = \tan A\]

**Complete step-by-step solution:**

In this given problem,

we are given as \[\sqrt {1 - {x^2}} + \sqrt {1 - {y^2}} = a(x - y)\]

we have to solve and to show the given let us consider,

\[x = \sin A\] and \[y = \sin B\]

Hence substituting the considered value in the given question which is termed as,

\[\sqrt {1 - {{\sin }^2}A} + \sqrt {1 - {{\sin }^2}B} = a(\sin A - \sin B)\]

As we know some of the trigonometric formulas as,

\[{\cos ^2}A + {\sin ^2}A = 1\]

\[1 - {\sin ^2}A = {\cos ^2}A\]

Thus, \[\sqrt {1 - {{\sin }^2}A} = \sqrt {{{\cos }^2}A} = {({\cos ^2}A)^{\dfrac{1}{2}}} = \cos A\]

And \[\sqrt {1 - {{\sin }^2}B} = \sqrt {{{\cos }^2}B} = {({\cos ^2}B)^{\dfrac{1}{2}}} = \cos B\]

And with this we also know the formula as

\[\sin A - \sin B = 2\cos \dfrac{{A + B}}{2}\sin \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\]

\[\cos A + \cos B = 2\cos \dfrac{{A + B}}{2}\cos \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\]

Substituting the formulas and derived ones in the given derived termed as,

\[\sqrt {1 - {{\sin }^2}A} + \sqrt {1 - {{\sin }^2}B} = a(\sin A - \sin B)\]

\[ \Rightarrow \cos A + \cos B = a.2\cos \dfrac{{A + B}}{2}\sin \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\]

\[ \Rightarrow 2\cos \dfrac{{A + B}}{2}\cos \dfrac{{A - B}}{2} = a.2\cos \dfrac{{A + B}}{2}\sin \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\]

By comparing on both the LHS and RHS, we can find some similar terms thus cancelling out those terms as \[2\cos \dfrac{{A + B}}{2}\]

Then the remaining term will be as,

\[ \Rightarrow \cos \dfrac{{A - B}}{2} = a\sin \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\]

This can also be written as,

\[ \Rightarrow a\sin \dfrac{{A - B}}{2} = \cos \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\]

\[ \Rightarrow \dfrac{{\sin \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}}}{{\cos \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}}} = \dfrac{1}{a}\]

As we know that \[\dfrac{{\sin A}}{{\cos A}} = \tan A\]

Similarly, applying that concept in the above term we get as,

\[ \Rightarrow \tan \dfrac{{A - B}}{2} = \dfrac{1}{a}\]

To show the value in the given question we need to solve further as,

Taking inverse of the function,

\[ \Rightarrow {\tan ^{ - 1}}\dfrac{1}{a} = \dfrac{{A - B}}{2}\]

\[ \Rightarrow 2{\tan ^{ - 1}}\dfrac{1}{a} = A - B\]

From our consideration on the starting of the problem for \[x\] and \[y\] as

\[x = \sin A\] and \[y = \sin B\] from this finding the value of \[A\] and \[B\] as,

\[A = {\sin ^{ - 1}}x\]

\[B = {\sin ^{ - 1}}y\]

While substituting the derived values in the above expression we found as,

\[ \Rightarrow 2{\tan ^{ - 1}}\dfrac{1}{a} = {\sin ^{ - 1}}x - {\sin ^{ - 1}}y\]

Differentiating the above equation with respect to \[x\] we get as,

Similarly, here \[a\]is a constant, such that

\[0 = \dfrac{1}{{\sqrt {1 - {x^2}} }} - \dfrac{1}{{\sqrt {1 - {y^2}} }}\dfrac{{dy}}{{dx}}\]

Such that,

\[{\sin ^{ - 1}}x = \dfrac{1}{{\sqrt {1 - {x^2}} }}\] and \[{\sin ^{ - 1}}y = \dfrac{1}{{\sqrt {1 - {y^2}} }}\]

Therefore,

\[ \Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{{\sqrt {1 - {y^2}} }}\dfrac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \dfrac{1}{{\sqrt {1 - {x^2}} }}\]

On cross multiply the above equation, then

\[ \Rightarrow \dfrac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \dfrac{{\sqrt {1 - {y^2}} }}{{\sqrt {1 - {x^2}} }}\]

From the above question using various trigonometric formula we have compute from the given as,

\[\sqrt {1 - {x^2}} + \sqrt {1 - {y^2}} = a(x - y)\]

Thus, the above solution is represented as,

\[\dfrac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \sqrt {\dfrac{{1 - {y^2}}}{{1 - {x^2}}}} \]

Hence proved.
