This page will inform you about coordinate geometry formulas. There are many formulas that involve coordinates, but the following four sections are fundamental to coordinate geometry. Here are the sections within this page.
The middle of a segment has a special name. It is called the midpoint. The midpoint of a segment separates a segment into two congruent segments that are each half the length of the segment. This is the formula for midpoint given that the endpoints of the segment are at (x1, y1) and (x2,y2).
To construct an equation of a line, we can use a special formula called the point-slope formula. The formula requires us to feed it with a point, (x1, y1), and a slope, labeled as an 'm.'

Another area within coordinate geometry rests special shapes, called conic sections. The shapes include parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas. See our lesson below. Once there, you will find several lessons, quizzes, and videos.
