Who was Rene Descartes?

Rene Descartes lived between 1596-1650. He was a visionary mathematician, a scientific thinker, and metaphysician. Rene discovered techniques that are in use in mathematic up to today. In mathematics, he made sure that analytical geometry was possible; which is an alternative for geometrical construction that is the use of rule and compass. As his discovery of algebra formulas became accessible to the extent that it preceded geometry, a coordinate system of algebraic geometry was born called the Cartesian coordinates.

What are the different parts of a two-dimensional Cartesian Coordinate System?

The cartesian coordinate system is the extension of the line in the form of axes to map data in a Cartesian plane. The cartesian coordinate system can have a two- dimensional or three-dimensional cartesian coordinates. A bi-dimensional cartesian coordinate,
