## What is the importance of coordinate plane in our daily lives?

The Cartesian coordinate plane of x and y works well with many simple situations in real life. For instance, if you are planning where to place different pieces of furniture in a room, you can draw a two-dimensional grid representing the room and use an appropriate unit of measurement.

### What is the statement of a mathematical Rene Descartes for Cartesian system?

These include his most famous statement: “I think, therefore I am”. Apart from his work in philosophy, Descartes was a leading mathematician and scientist. He invented the Cartesian coordinate system, developed analytic geometry and laid the foundation for the development of calculus.

**What is the use of Cartesian coordinate system?**

Cartesian coordinates can be used not only to specify the location of points, but also to specify the coordinates of vectors. The Cartesian coordinates of two or three-dimensional vectors look just like those of points in the plane or three-dimensional space.

**What is the contribution of Rene Descartes in mathematics?**

René Descartes was a French mathematician, philosopher, and scientist. He developed rules for deductive reasoning, or rational, scientific thinking; developed a system for using letters as mathematical variables; and discovered how to plot points on a plane called the Cartesian plane.

## How do you find coordinates in real life?

How to find coordinates on Google Maps on the mobile app

- Open the Google Maps app on your iPhone or Android phone.
- Enter the location, or select and hold to drop a pin on the map of the location you want the coordinates for.
- Scroll down to find the coordinates.
- Tap the coordinates to copy to your phone’s clipboard.

### What is the importance of coordinate system in locating places?

To help us locate places on the earth’s surface, we use a coordinate system. This coordinate system is like placing a giant grid over the earth. This grid has lines extending from east to west called lines of latitude and lines extending from north to south called lines of longitude.

**How did Descartes come up with the Cartesian plane?**

One day, Descartes noticed a fly crawling around on the ceiling. When he got out of bed, Descartes wrote down what he had discovered. Then he tried describing the positions of points, the same way he described the position of the fly. Descartes had invented the coordinate plane!

**How did the Cartesian coordinate system discovered?**

The Cartesian plane is named after the French mathematician and philosopher René Descartes (1596–1650), who introduced the coordinate system to show how algebra could be used to solve geometric problems.

## What is an example of Cartesian coordinates?

The Cartesian coordinate system uses a horizontal axis that is called the x-axis and a vertical axis called the y-axis. Equations for lines in this system will have both the x and y variable. For example, the equation 2x + y = 2 is an example of a line in this system. These two axes cross perpendicular to each other.

### What is meant by Cartesian system?

[ kär-tē′zhən ] A system in which the location of a point is given by coordinates that represent its distances from perpendicular lines that intersect at a point called the origin.

**What is the contribution of Isaac Newton in mathematics?**

Over two miraculous years, during the time of the Great Plague of 1665-6, the young Newton developed a new theory of light, discovered and quantified gravitation, and pioneered a revolutionary new approach to mathematics: infinitesimal calculus.
