Co-ordinate Geometry is a branch of geometry which is used to identify a point on a plane. It was invented by RENE DESCARTES.
The two mutually perpendicular number lines which are used to find the position of a point on a plane is called rectangular axis. In the graph, XOX' is called x-axis and the point YOY' is called y-axis. The two lines XOX' and YOY' are also called rectangular co-ordinate axis which divide the plane into four equal parts which are called quadrant.
Plotting points is the process of locating a point whose co-ordinates are given. The plotting of points can be done on graph paper.
If the elements or co-ordinates of any two points are given, the distance between them can be found with the help of distance formulae.
Suppose that,
P(x_{1}, y_{1}) and Q(x_{2}, y_{2}) are any two points in the co-ordinates plane and 'd' is the distance between them.
Now,
Draw PT and QK perpendicular on x-axis and PM perpendicular to QK.
Then,
OK = x_{2}, KQ = y_{2}, OT = x, PT = y.
PM = TK= OK - OT = (x_{2}- x_{1})
Also,
OM = OK - MK = QK - PT
= (y_{2}- y_{1}) [∴ MK = PT]
Since, ∠PMQ is a right angle, so \(\triangle\)PMQ is a right angle triangle.
Now,
\(\triangle\)PMQ using Pythagoras Theorem,
PQ^{2}= PM^{2}= QM^{2}
= (x_{2}- x_{1})^{2}+ (y_{2}- y_{1})^{2}
or, PQ = (x_{2}− x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2}− y_{1})^{2} ................... \(\sqrt{(x_2 − x_1)^2 + (y_2 − y_1)^2}\)
∴ Distance (d) = (x_{2}− x_{1})^{2}+ (y_{2}− y_{1})^{2} ...................\(\sqrt{(x_2 − x_1)^2 + (y_2 − y_1)^2}\)
Again,
The distance of a point A(x, y) from the origin O(0, 0) is,
or, OA = (x−0)^{2}+ (y−0)^{2} .................. \(\sqrt{(x−0)^2 + (y−0)^2}\)
∴ OA = x^{2}+ y^{2} .................... \(\sqrt{x^2 + y^2}\)
Again,
Slope of the line = PQ = Tanθ
\(\frac{OM}{PQ}\) = \(\frac{y_2 − y_1}{x_2 − x_1}\)
