Cartesian coordinates

You can describe each point in a plane with cartesian coordinates, indicated by

(x, y)



A geometric representation of a point is given by coordinates in a flat plane. That consists of a horizontal x-axis and orthogonal the vertical y-axis. The x-axis runs from − ∞ to + ∞ and the y-axis also runs from − ∞ to + ∞.



The cartesian coordinates are named after the French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes (1596 - 1650).
