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

noun

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.
