Introduction to Analytic Geometry

Geometry is the one of the most ancient branches of mathematics, concerned with the properties of space and object – points, lines, angles, planes, surfaces and solids in space. Generalization of geometry known as “Analytic Geometry” was in vented and first used in 1637 by a French Mathematician and philosopher, Rene Descarte (1596–1650 A.D). He applied algebra to trigonometry, not just in the use of algebra to manipulate the dimension of geometric figures but also in the presentation of a point by a pair of number and presentation of lines and curves by equations.
