The leftmost panel of the Scratch window is imagined to be Cartesian plane. The centre of the panel has coordinates (0, 0), with positive x-coordinate values to the right, and positive y-coordinate values upwards, and correspondingly negative coordinate values to the left and below the central origin.
Thus, in the dimensions of the Cartesian plane, the variables that explained the variability on the x-axis (PC1) were fat (r=0.84, P <0.001), PROT (r =0.75, P <0.001) and TDE (r =0.99, P <0.001).Variables that explained the variability on the y-axis (PC2) included LACT (r=-0.86, P <0.001), the SCC (r =0.50, P <0.001) and the TBC (r =0.62; P <0.001).
They hit upon the idea to represent imaginary numbers as points on a plane similar to the Cartesian plane like the one devise by Rene Descartes in the 17th century.
The first is the value of X, Y, and Z of the Cartesian plane where the end effector is located, the second is the destination point, and the third belongs to the via point.

We will assume conductors perpendicular to XY Cartesian plane and define i and j as the corresponding unit vectors.
From answering seatwork to doing scientific experiments with indigenous materials, from solving mathematical equations to drawing a butterfly on a Cartesian plane, from theories to job skills, these were among the innovations in the new curriculum observed by teachers interviewed by the Inquirer.
A proof, which is based on algebraic manipulation of coordinates in Cartesian plane, is less explanatory (but connects geometry to algebra).
As in the earlier example, the area involved is small enough that a rectangular Cartesian plane can be safely used, and the issue of the earth's curvature, and thus of projection, can be ignored.
Progressing along its lone axis, the book is a sequence of 294 different dissections of the Cartesian plane. It's a difficult kind of dimensional collapse, arranging the planar into the linear, though imperfect at moments, Nicolai is at home working within self-imposed constraints.
