## Analytic Geometry: Cartesian Coordinates, Distance Formula, Equations of Lines, Midpoint Formula, and Conic Sections

Analytic geometry, also known as coordinate geometry, is a branch of mathematics that uses algebraic symbolism and methods to solve geometric problems. It was founded by French mathematician René Descartes in the 17th century, who adapted the algebra of his contemporary Viète to study geometric curves by using letters to represent variable distances. This approach establishes a correspondence between geometric curves and algebraic equations, making it possible to reformulate geometric problems as equivalent algebraic problems.

### Cartesian Coordinates

In analytic geometry, points in a two-dimensional plane are represented using Cartesian coordinates, a system of coordinates that uses two perpendicular lines, called axes, intersecting at a right angle. The x-axis represents horizontal distances, while the y-axis represents vertical distances. Any point in the plane can be uniquely represented by a pair of numbers (x, y), where x is the horizontal coordinate and y is the vertical coordinate.

### Distance Formula

The distance between two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) in a Cartesian plane is given by the distance formula, which is derived from the Pythagorean theorem:

d = sqrt((x2 - x1)² + (y2 - y1)²)

This formula calculates the straight-line distance between the two points, assuming the x and y coordinates are measured in the same units.

### Equations of Lines

The equation of a line in a Cartesian plane is given by the slope-intercept form:

y = mx + b

where m is the slope of the line (the change in y divided by the change in x) and b is the y-intercept (the value of y when x = 0. This form of the equation represents the equation of a line in terms of its slope and y-intercept.

### Midpoint Formula

The midpoint of a line segment connecting points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by the midpoint formula:

(x, y) = ((x1 + x2) / 2, (y1 + y2) / 2)

This formula calculates the coordinates of the midpoint of the line segment, which is the point halfway between the two endpoints.

### Conic Sections

Conic sections are curves formed by the intersection of a plane and a cone. There are three types of conic sections: circle, ellipse, and hyperbola. The equations of these curves can be expressed in terms of Cartesian coordinates. For example, the equation of a circle with center (a, b) and radius r is:

(x - a)² + (y - b)² = r²

The equation of an ellipse with center (a, b), semi-major axis a, and semi-minor axis b is:

(x - a)² / a² + (y - b)² / b² = 1

And the equation of a hyperbola with center (a, b), horizontal axis 2a, and vertical axis 2b is:

(x - a)² / a² - (y - b)² / b² = 1
