- The definition of analytic geometry is solving geometry problems by representing geometric figures with algebraic equations and plotting them on a coordinate graphing system.
Coordinate geometry is an example of analytic-geometry.

## analytic geometry

the branch of geometry in which a coordinate graphing system makes visible, using points, lines, and curves, the numerical relationships of algebraic equations

also called coordinate geometry or Cartesian geometry
