This book has been my aim to lay before the students a strictly rigorous and yet very simple exposition of Co-ordinate Geometry and its applications. Like the companion volumes Differential Calculus, Real Analysis, Differential Equations, Integral Calculus, Statics, Dynamics etc. The book has the following special features: 1. The development of the subject is systematics. 2. Almost every article is followed by properly graded illustrative examples. 3. It contains solutions of questions set in various Indian Universities and competitive examinations. Most of the examples are selected from the university papers. Errors or misprints, if any, are unintentional and regretted. Suggestions for further improvement will be warmly received.

    Change of Axes Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    It is sometimes convenient to solve a problem by changing the position of the axes. The change may involve a change of origin without change in the directions of the axes (Translation of Axes) or may involve only a rotation of the axes without changing the origin (Rotation of Axes) or it may involve both.

    The Hyperbola Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    A hyperbola is the locus of a point which moves in a plane so that its distance from a fixed point bears a constant ratio (> 1) to its distance from a fixed line. The fixed point is called the focus, the fixed line, the directrix and the constant ratio, usually denoted by e, is called the eccentricity of the hyperbola.
