Cartesian Plane

The Cartesian plane, named after the mathematician Rene Descartes (1596 – 1650), is a plane with a rectangular coordinate system  that associates each point in the plane with a pair of numbers.

Using these axes, we can describe any point in the plane using an ordered pair of numbers.

The Cartesian plane extends infinitely in all directions that’s why we put arrows at the ends of the axes.
