Introduction

The word “Geometry” is derived from the word “geo” meaning “earth” and “metron” meaning “measuring”. The need of measuring land is the origin of geometry.

“Geometry” is the study of points, lines, curves, surface etc., and their properties. The importance of analytical geometry is that it establishes a correspondence between geometric curves and algebraic equations.

A systematic study of geometry by the use of algebra was first carried out by celebrated French Philosopher and mathematician Rene Descartes (1596-1650), in his book’ La Geometry’, published in 1637. The resulting combination of analysis and geometry is referred now as analytical geometry. He is known as the father of Analytical geometry

Analytical geometry is extremely useful in the aircraft industry, especially when dealing with the shape of an airplane fuselage. Tags : Introduction | Mathematics , 11th Business Mathematics and Statistics(EMS) : Chapter 3 : Analytical Geometry
