This category contains examples of **Homogeneous Cartesian Coordinates**.

Let $\CC$ denote the Cartesian plane.

Let $P = \tuple {x, y}$ be an arbitrary point in $\CC$.

Let $x$ and $y$ be expressed in the forms:

\(\ds x\) | \(=\) | \(\ds \dfrac X Z\) | ||||||||||||

\(\ds y\) | \(=\) | \(\ds \dfrac Y Z\) |

where $Z$ is an arbitrary real number.

$P$ is then determined by the ordered triple $\tuple {X, Y, Z}$, the terms of which are called its **homogeneous Cartesian coordinates**.
