Examples for

Coordinate geometry, or analytic geometry, is the study of geometry using an algebraic representation of a specified coordinate system to find and analyze relations between geometric figures. Wolfram|Alpha has knowledge about many geometric figures and is capable of determining the algebraic equations for them and computing geometric properties.

Compute the equation and draw the graph of a line.

Identify the quadrant in which a given 2D point lies.

Compute the equation and draw the graph of a plane in 3D.

Identify and compute the properties of circles, ellipses, parabolas and hyperbolas.
