Questions on Coordinate Geometry

What is Co-ordinate Geometry?

Co-ordinate geometry is a branch of geometry where the position of the points on the plane is defined with the help of an ordered pair of numbers also known as coordinates. (kindly use the comment box below to ask a question).

  1. A car hire company estimates that the cost of acquiring and operating a car hire can be estimated by the linear equation:

Y = 0.71x + 1800

Where y represents the total cost (in Naira), and x represents the number of kilometers driven.
