1 D0 APPENDIX D Precalculus Review SECTION D. The Cartesian Plane The Cartesian Plane The Distance and Midpoint Formulas Equations of Circles The Cartesian Plane An ordered pair, of real numbers has as its first member and as its second member. The model for representing ordered pairs is called the rectangular coordinate sstem, or the Cartesian plane, after the French mathematician René Descartes. It is developed b considering two real lines intersecting at right angles see Figure D.). The horizontal real line is usuall called the -ais, and the vertical real line is usuall called the -ais. Their point of intersection is the origin. The two aes divide the plane into four quadrants. -ais Quadrant II Origin Quadrant I, ) -ais, ) 3 3, ) 0, 0) 3, 0) 3 3, 3) 3 Quadrant III Quadrant IV The Cartesian plane Figure D. Points represented b ordered pairs Figure D.5 Each point in the plane is identified b an ordered pair, of real numbers and, called coordinates of the point. The number represents the directed distance from the -ais to the point, and the number represents the directed distance from the -ais to the point see Figure A.). For the point,, the first coordinate is the -coordinate or abscissa, and the second coordinate is the -coordinate or ordinate. For eample, Figure D.5 shows the locations of the points,, 3,, 0, 0, 3, 0, and, 3 in the Cartesian plane. NOTE The signs of the coordinates of a point determine the quadrant in which the point lies. For instance, if > 0 and < 0, then, lies in Quadrant IV. Note that an ordered pair a, b is used to denote either a point in the plane or an open interval on the real line. This, however, should not be confusing the nature of the problem should clarif whether a point in the plane or an open interval is being discussed.

2 APPENDIX D Precalculus Review D The Distance and Midpoint Formulas Recall from the Pthagorean Theorem that, in a right triangle, the hpotenuse c and sides a and b are related b a b c. Conversel, if a b c, the triangle is a right triangle see Figure D.). a c b, ), ), ) The distance between two points Figure D.7 d The Pthagorean Theorem: a b c Figure D. Suppose ou want to determine the distance d between the two points, and, in the plane. If the points lie on a horizontal line, then and the distance between the points is If the points lie on a vertical line, then and the distance between the points is.. If the two points do not lie on a horizontal or vertical line, the can be used to form a right triangle, as shown in Figure D.7. The length of the vertical side of the triangle is and the length of the horizontal side is B the Pthagorean Theorem, it follows that., d d. Replacing and b the equivalent epressions and produces the following result. Distance Formula The distance d between the points, and, in the plane is given b d. EXAMPLE Finding the Distance Between Two Points Find the distance between the points, and 3,. Solution d 3 Distance Formula

Solution Figure D.8 shows the triangle formed b the three points. The lengths of the three sides are as follows. Because and d d 0 5 d d d d 3 50 Sum of squares of sides Square of hpotenuse ou can appl the Pthagorean Theorem to conclude that the triangle is a right triangle. Each point of the form, 3) lies on this horizontal line., 3) 5, 3) EXAMPLE 3 Using the Distance Formula Find such that the distance between, 3 and, is 5. d = 5 d = 5 5, ) Given a distance, find a point. Figure D.9 Solution Using the Distance Formula, ou can write the following Distance Formula Square both sides. Write in standard form. Factor. Therefore, 5 or, and ou can conclude that there are two solutions. That is, each of the points 5, 3 and, 3 lies five units from the point,, as shown in Figure D.9. Midpoint of a line segment Figure D , 3) 3, 0) 9, 3) The coordinates of the midpoint of the line segment joining two points can be found b averaging the -coordinates of the two points and averaging the -coordinates of the two points. That is, the midpoint of the line segment joining the points, and, in the plane is,. Midpoint Formula For instance, the midpoint of the line segment joining the points 5, 3 and 9, 3 is 5 9, 3 3, 0 as shown in Figure D.0.

4 APPENDIX D Precalculus Review D3 Center: h, k) Radius: r Point on circle:, ) Equations of Circles A circle can be defined as the set of all points in a plane that are equidistant from a fied point. The fied point is the center of the circle, and the distance between the center and a point on the circle is the radius see Figure D.). You can use the Distance Formula to write an equation for the circle with center h, k and radius r. Let, be an point on the circle. Then the distance between, and the center h, k is given b h k r. B squaring both sides of this equation, ou obtain the standard form of the equation of a circle. Definition of a circle Figure D. Standard Form of the Equation of a Circle The point, lies on the circle of radius r and center h, k if and onl if h k r. The standard form of the equation of a circle with center at the origin, h, k 0, 0, is r. If r, the circle is called the unit circle. EXAMPLE Finding the Equation of a Circle, ) + ) + ) = 0 Standard form of the equation of a circle Figure D. 8 3, ) The point 3, lies on a circle whose center is at,, as shown in Figure D.. Find an equation for the circle. Solution The radius of the circle is the distance between, and 3,. r 3 0 You can write the standard form of the equation of this circle as 0 0. Standard form B squaring and simplifing, the equation h k r can be written in the following general form of the equation of a circle. A A D E F 0, A 0 To convert such an equation to the standard form h k p ou can use a process called completing the square. If p > 0, the graph of the equation is a circle. If p 0, the graph is the single point h, k. If p < 0, the equation has no graph.

5 D APPENDIX D Precalculus Review EXAMPLE 5 Completing the Square r = 5, ) = A circle with a radius of and center at 5, Figure D.3 Sketch the graph of the circle whose general equation is Solution To complete the square, first divide b so that the coefficients of and are both half half 5 General form Divide b. Group terms. Standard form Note that ou complete the square b adding the square of half the coefficient of and the square of half the coefficient of to both sides of the equation. The circle is centered at 5, and its radius is, as shown in Figure D.3. Complete the square 5 b adding and to both sides. We have now reviewed some fundamental concepts of analtic geometr. Because these concepts are in common use toda, it is eas to overlook their revolutionar nature. At the time analtic geometr was being developed b Pierre de Fermat and René Descartes, the two major branches of mathematics geometr and algebra were largel independent of each other. Circles belonged to geometr and equations belonged to algebra. The coordination of the points on a circle and the solutions of an equation belongs to what is now called analtic geometr. It is important to become skilled in analtic geometr so that ou can move easil between geometr and algebra. For instance, in Eample, ou were given a geometric description of a circle and were asked to find an algebraic equation for the circle. Thus, ou were moving from geometr to algebra. Similarl, in Eample 5 ou were given an algebraic equation and asked to sketch a geometric picture. In this case, ou were moving from algebra to geometr. These two eamples illustrate the two most common problems in analtic geometr.. Given a graph, find its equation. Geometr Algebra. Given an equation, find its graph. Algebra Geometr In the net section, ou will review other eamples of these two tpes of problems.
