Step 1
The Coordinate systems are used to locate the thing with respect to the known origin.
Step 2
The system can be classified into 3 types.
Rectangular, Cylindrical and Spherical.
Where rectangular coordinate system is the most commonly used type which is also known as the Cartesian coordinate system.
Thus, a. rectangular coordinate system is the most common.

Let C be a circle, and let P be a point not on the circle. Prove that the maximum and minimum distances from P to a point X on C occur when the line X P goes through the center of C. [Hint: Choose coordinate systems so that C is defined by
\(x2 + y2 = r2\) and P is a point (a,0)
on the x-axis with a \(\neq \pm r,\) use calculus to find the maximum and minimum for the square of the distance. Don’t forget to pay attention to endpoints and places where a derivative might not exist.]

Since we will be using various bases and the coordinate systems they define, let's review how we translate between coordinate systems. a. Suppose that we have a basis\(\displaystyle{B}={\left\lbrace{v}_{{1}},{v}_{{2}},\ldots,{v}_{{m}}\right\rbrace}{f}{\quad\text{or}\quad}{R}^{{m}}\). Explain what we mean by the representation {x}g of a vector x in the coordinate system defined by B. b. If we are given the representation \(\displaystyle{\left\lbrace{x}\right\rbrace}_{{B}},\) how can we recover the vector x? c. If we are given the vector x, how can we find \(\displaystyle{\left\lbrace{x}\right\rbrace}_{{B}}\)? d. Suppose that BE is a basis for R^2. If {x}_B = \begin{bmatrix}1 \\ -2 \end{bmatrix}ZSK find the vector x. e.
