What is coordinate geometry?
The subject coordinate geometry is that particular branch of mathematics in which geometry is studied with the help of algebra. This branch of mathematics was first introduced by the great French Philosopher and Mathematician Rene’ Descartes and by his name the subject is also called Cartesian Coordinate Geometry.
In coordinate geometry, the concept of algebra is introduced and as a result, the fundamental properties and theorems of geometry can be easily deduced. For this reason sometimes this branch is called Analytical Geometry.
Coordinate Geometry is of two types:
(i) Two Dimensional or Plane Coordinate Geometry
(ii) Three Dimensional or Solid Coordinate Geometry.
In two dimensional coordinate geometry, the discussion of geometry on a plane is developed whereas in three dimensional coordinate geometry we consider the geometry of space of a solid body. The position of a point in two dimensional coordinate geometry is uniquely determined by two real numbers with appropriate signs in three dimensional Coordinate Geometry the position of a point on a solid body is uniquely determined by three sign real numbers.
