Definition of the noun Cartesian Coordinates
What does Cartesian Coordinates mean as a name of something?
- [algebraic geometry] The coordinates of a point measured as its perpendicular distance to the right of a vertical axis (the y-axis) and its perpendicular distance above a horizontal axis (the x-axis).
