Euclidean Geometry and Analytic Geometry

Euclidean geometry: In it one starts with certain concepts and axioms and use the methods of deductive logic to derive a number of theorems and results. These help us know a number of useful properties of geometrical figures.

Analytical geometry or coordinate geometry: In this, points in a plane are represented by ordered pairs of real numbers, called cartesian coordinates and lines and curves are represented by algebraic equations.
