Analytic geometry provides a bridge between algebra and geometry that makes it possible for geometric problems to be solved algebraically (or analytically). It also allows us to solve algebraic problems geometrically, but the former is far more important, especially when numbers are assigned to essentially geometric concepts. Consider, for instance, the length of a line segment or the angle between two lines. Even if the lines and points in question are accurately known, the number representing the length of a segment or the angle between two lines can be determined only approximately by measurement. Algebraic methods provide an exact determination of the number.
Analytic Geometry, Sixth Edition, designed for students with a reasonably sound background in algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, contains more than enough material for a three-semester-hour or five-quarter-hour course in analytic geometry.
