# Analytical Geometry

Analytical Geometry is the branch of Mathematics which makes use of algebraic methods to evaluate measures and lengths to solve geometrical problems. Euclidean Geometry defines concept, approaches problems theoretically and proves properties, postulates and theorems using logical statements. Empowered with the algebraic techniques of simplification and evaluation, the geometrical problems are solved with relative ease in analytical geometry.

Analytical geometry is often referred to as Coordinate Geometry, as it primarily uses coordinates.

Starting from Rene Descarte’s classical Cartesian system of coordinates, other systems like Polar, Cylindrical and spherical systems of coordinates are widely used in solving many mathematical problems.
