Coordinate System

Concept

Coordinate System

In mathematics, the most common type of coordinate system is the Cartesian coordinate system. It is usually two-dimensional and consists of two axes: the x-x\text{-}axis and y-y\text{-}axis. These axes are perpendicular to one another and intersect at the origin.

Coordinate systems are used to describe the position of points or other objects.
