## FAQs on RS Aggarwal Solutions Class 10 Chapter 16 - Coordinate Geometry (Ex 16A) Exercise 16.1

**1. How many Exercises are there in RS Aggarwal Class 10, Chapter-16?**

**RS Aggarwal Chapter 16 of Class 10 consists of 5 exercises and 157 questions overall. They are,**

Exercise 6A consists of 32 questions and it is mainly about finding the distance between given points or from the origin and finding the coordinates of the points and proving the collinearity.

Exercise 6B consists of 30 questions and is based on section formulae such as calculating distance using the ratio of which coordinates divide and finding the midpoint.

Exercise 6C consists of 22 problems and is based on calculating the area of the triangle and quadrilateral using coordinates, collinearity, and the ratio of areas.

Exercise 6D consists of 17 questions and is based on finding the median of a triangle and diagonal of a quadrilateral.

**2. Who is the Father of Coordinate Geometry?**

**A French Mathematician-** Rene Descartes, first made the connection between algebra and geometry, which led to the birth of Coordinate Geometry, also called Cartesian Geometry in honor of Descartes. Although some ancient Mathematicians did work on Coordinate Geometry before Descartes. But, due to his contributions to the field, he was referred to as the father of analytical geometry. Renatius Cartesius is the Latin name of Rene Descartes, and so we learn the terms ‘Cartesian plane’ and ‘Cartesian coordinate system’ got its name.

**3. How important is Coordinate Geometry?**

Coordinate Geometry is an essential part of Mathematics that acts as a connection between algebra and geometry using graphs of lines and curves. It is an important branch of Mathematics and helps us assist in locating points in a plane, the distance between two points, finding the midpoint, equation of eclipse, curves, and circles, finding perimeter and area of a polygon, determining the perpendicular and parallel line, and slope of the line segment. Moreover, it is mainly useful in various fields of Mathematics such as trigonometry, calculus, dimensional geometry, and more.
