2 The French mathematician René Descartes first introduced the number plane. He realised that using two sets of lines to form a square grid allowed the position of a point in the plane to be recorded using a pair of numbers or coordinates. Coordinate geometr is a powerful mathematical technique that allows algebraic methods to be used in the solution of geometrical problems. In this chapter, we will look at the basic ideas of: the distance between two points on the number plane the midpoint of an interval gradient (or slope) the relationship between a straight line and its equation. We shall then see how these can be used to solve problems. 8:0 The Distance etween Two Points The number plane is the basis of coordinate geometr, an important branch of mathematics. In this chapter, we will look at some of the basic ideas of coordinate geometr and how the can be used to solve problems. prep qu A a = b + c b = a + c iz Which of the following is the correct statement of Pthagoras theorem for the triangle shown? c 8:0 For questions to, use Pthagoras theorem to find the value of d. cm d cm cm cm cm b C c = a + b a m dm d cm m CHAPTER 8 COORDINATE GEOMETRY 0

16 8:0 Graphing Straight Lines A straight line is made up of a set of points, each with its own pair of coordinates. Coordinate geometr uses an equation to describe the relationship between the  and coordinates of an point on the line. In the diagram, the equation of the line is + =. From the points shown, it is clear that the relationship is that the sum of each point s coordinates is. A point can onl lie on a line if its coordinates satisf the equation of the line. For the points (, ) and (, ), it is clear that the sum of the coordinates is not equal to. So the do not lie on the line.
