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.

Specify a line through two points:
Specify a line by slope and intercept:
Identify the quadrant in which a given 2D point lies.
Identify the quadrant that contains a given point:
Compute the equation and draw the graph of a plane in 3D.
Specify a plane through three points:
Identify and compute the properties of circles, ellipses, parabolas and hyperbolas.
