**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.
