The use of different transformations, whether basic or complex, allows one in many cases to obtain a simpler solution of problems in plane or in analytic geometry.
I was pleasantly surprised that the book also provides a summary of a number of the concepts that students may need prior to tackling the problems; for example, the section on Analytic Geometry provides a quick summary on the equations of lines, parabolas and circles, distance and slope between two points.
Furthermore, from the analytic geometry we know that the distance between any two points in the plane can be calculated from the expression
