# Analytic-geometry meaning

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.

noun

The analysis of geometric structures and properties principally by algebraic operations on variables defined in terms of position coordinates.

noun

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

noun

The use of algebra to solve problems in geometry, whereby geometric figures are represented by algebraic equations and plotted using coordinates.

(geometry) A branch of mathematics that investigates properties of figures through the coordinates of their points.
