Coordinate Geometry


Analytical geometry is a branch of mathematics in which algebraic methods are employed to solve the problems in Geometry. It was the French mathematician Rane de Cartes who first introduced this method. It means geometry of analytic varieties. It is also referred to as coordinate geometry or Cartesian geometry. The Cartesian coordinate system is used to manipulate equations for planes, straight lines and squares, often in two and sometimes in three dimensions. Geometrically, it is helpful to study the Euclidean plane (2 dimensions) and Euclidean space (3 dimensions).

In the simplest way, analytic geometry can be explained. It is concerned with the explanation of geometrical shapes in a numerical ...
