In this page analytical geometry you can find many sub topics in this main topic.
Rene Descartes(1596-2650) whose "La Geometric" was published in 1637 as an appendix to his "Discours de la methods" is regarded as the inventor as analytical geo-metry and modern analytical geometry is called Cartesian Geometry after him.
However the fundamental principles and methods of this topic were already discovered by Pierre de Fermat earlier.
Descartes procedure in geometry was to begin with a geometry problem to convert it into an algebraic equation simplify it and then solve the equation geometric.
However, even the usual formula for distance between two points,slope and angle between two straight lines are not to be found in this work of Decartes.
These are due to later mathematicians like Clairaut, Monge and Larcoin. Newton used several types of co-ordinates including polar and bipolar.L'Hospital had written a famous text book.
On this page you can find the topics ratio formula,slope of the line,the distance between two points,area of triangle,area of quadrilateral,mid point formula, centroid formula, the method of finding the point of intersection, orthocenter.
Each page consists of definition example problems with pictures and detailed solution.These pages will be very useful to the learners.
We have given step by step explanation of each topic. This will improve your learning techniques. These topics are more important for 10th grade students.
People who are going to attend the competitive exams like GED must practice these concepts step by step.If we handle each problem with pictures it will be very easy to understand and we can try the other things on your own.
After having gone through the stuff given above, we hope that the students would have understood "Analytical geometry".
