    Co-ordinate Geometry is a branch of within geometry which involves one of the following concepts.

    1. Reflection (or image) of a point P in a line (could be the co-ordinate axes themselves) and finding out the co-ordinates of the image P`.
    2. Finding the length of a line given its co-ordinates. These problems could also include determining the type of polygon that will be formed by joining the co-ordinates. E.g. given the vertices of a polygon, determining if it is a square or a rectangle etc.
    3. The ratio at which two lines intersect each other given their co-ordinates.

    Finding out missing values in the equation of lines, given either that the lines in consideration are parallel to each other or are perpendicular to each other.
