FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS OF ANALYTIC
GEOMETRY
Lesson 1: Rectangular Coordinate System,
Directed Distance, Distance Formula
OBJECTIVE:
At the end of the lesson, the students should be able to
illustrate properly and solve application problems involving
distance formula.
Analytic Geometry is the branch of mathematics, which
deals with the properties, behaviours, and solution of points,
lines, curves, angles, surfaces and solids by means of algebraic
methods in relation to a coordinate system(Quirino and
Mijares) .
It is a unified algebra and geometry dealing with the study of
relationships between different geometric figures and
equations by means of the geometric properties and
processes of algebra in relation to a coordinate system (
Marquez, et al).
DEFINITION:
FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS
Two Parts of Analytic Geometry
1. Plane Analytic Geometry deals with figures on a
plane surface (twodimensional geometry, 2D).
2. Solid Analytic Geometry deals with solid figures (
threedimensional geometry, 3D).
Directed Line a line in which one direction is chosen as
positive and the opposite direction as negative.
Directed Line Segment portion of a line from one point
to another.
Directed Distance the distance from one point to
another; may be positive or negative depending upon
which direction is denoted positive.
DEFINITION:
RECTANGULAR COORDINATES
A pair of number (x, y) in which x is the first and y the
second number is called an ordered pair. It defines the
position of a point on a plane by defining the directed
distances of the point from a vertical line and from a
horizontal line that meet at a point called the origin, O.
The xcoordinate of a point , known also as its abscissa, is
the directed distance of the point from the vertical axis, y
axis; while the ycoordinate, also known as the ordinate, is
its directed distance from the horizontal axis, the xaxis.
DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS
The horizontal distance between any two points is the
difference between the abscissa (xcoordinate) of the
point on the right minus the abscissa (xcoordinate) of
the point on the left; that is,
Horizontal Distance Between Points
Distance, d = x
right
x

Vertical Distance Between Any Two Points
The vertical distance between any two points is the
difference between the ordinate (ycoordinate) of the
upper point minus the ordinate (ycoordinate) of the
lower point; that is,
Distance d = y
upper
y
lower
Distance Between Any Two Points on a Plane
The distance between any two points on a plane
is the square root of the sum of the squares of the
difference of the abscissas and of the difference
of the ordinates of the points. That is, if

equidistant from (3, 1) and (8, 2). Find the coordinates of P.
6. Find the point on the yaxis that is equidistant from (6, 1) and (2, 3).
Lesson 2: DIVISION OF A LINE SEGMENT
OBJECTIVE:
At the end of the lesson, they students should be able
to illustrate properly and solve problems involving division of
line segments.
Let us consider a line segment bounded by the points
. This line segment can be subdivided
in some ratio and the point of division can be determined. It
is also possible to determine terminal point(s) whenever the
given line segment is extended beyond any of the given
endpoints or beyond both endpoints . If we consider the
point of division/ terminal point to be P (x, y ) and define the
ratio, r, to be
then the coordinates of point P are given by:

that is twothirds of the distance from the vertex to the midpoint of the
opposite side.
Lesson 3: INCLINATION AND SLOPE A LINE
OBJECTIVES:

to use the concept of angle of inclination and slope of a line
to solve application problems.
INCLINATION AND SLOPE OF A LINE
The angle of inclination of the line L or simply
inclination , denoted by , is defined as the smallest
positive angle measured from the positive direction of
the xaxis to the line.
The slope of the line, denoted by m , is defined
as the tangent of the angle of inclination; that is,
And if two points are points on
the line L then the slope m can be defined as
m= tan

one line is the negative reciprocal of the slope of
the other line.

Lesson 4: EQUATION OF A LOCUS
OBJECTIVE:
At the end of the lesson, the students should be able to
determine the equation of a locus defining line, circle and
conics and other geometries defined by the given condition.
EQUATION OF A LOCUS
An equation involving the variables x and y is usually
satisfied by an infinite number of pairs of values of x and y,
and each pair of values corresponds to a point. These points
follow a pattern according to the given equation and form a
geometric figure called the locus of the equation.
Since an equation of a curve is a relationship satisfied by
the x and y coordinates of each point on the curve (but by
no other point), we need merely to consider an arbitrary
point (x,y) on the curve and give a description of the curve in
terms of x and y satisfying a given condition.
Sample Problems
1. Find an equation for the set of all points (x, y)
satisfying the given conditions.
2. It is equidistant from (5, 8) and (2, 4).
3. The sum of its distances from (0, 4) and (0, 4) is 10.
4. It is equidistant from (2, 4) and the yaxis
5. It is on the line having slope of 2 and containing the
point (3, 2).
6. The difference of its distances from (3, 0) and (3, 0) is
2.
Lesson 5: STRAIGHT LINES / FIRST DEGREE
EQUATIONS
OBJECTIVE:
At the end of the lesson, the students is
should be able to write the equation of a line in the
general form or in any of the standard forms; as well
as, illustrate properly and solve application
problems concerning the normal form of the line.
STRAIGHT LINE
A straight line is the locus of a point that
moves in a plane in a constant slope.
Equation of Vertical/ Horizontal Line
If a straight line is parallel to the yaxis (
vertical line ), its equation is x = k, where k is the
directed distance of the line from the yaxis.
Similarly, if a line is parallel to the xaxis (
horizontal line ), its equation is y = k, where k is
the directed distance of the line from the xaxis.
General Equation of a Line
A line which is neither vertical nor horizontal
is defined by the general linear equation
Ax + By + C=0,
where A and B are nonzeroes.
The line has yintercept of and slope of .
