Important Concepts Of Coordinate Geometry & Questions For SSC And Railway

Quantitative Aptitude is an equally important section for SSC CGL, CHSL, MTS exams and has an even more abundant importance in some other exams conducted by SSC. Generally, there are questions asked related to basic concepts and formulas of Coordinate Geometry. 
To let you make the most of QUANT section, we are providing important facts related to Coordinate Geometry. Also, Railway Exam is nearby with bunches of posts for the interested candidates in which quantitative aptitude is a major part. We have covered important notes and questions focusing on these prestigious exams. We wish you all the best of luck to come over the fear of Mathematics section.
