This claim may be less true for coordinate bilinguals that are learning L2 subsequent to the development of L1, presumably in different contexts, resulting in the development of translation equivalents in two languages that correspond to two different sets of representations (Hamers & Blanc, 1990), yielding less linguistic overlap and requiring, perhaps, less cognitive organization.
Therefore, if a geographic coordinate is reported with an accuracy probability of 50 percent, a horizontal error of plus or minus 100 feet, and a vertical error of plus or minus 50 feet, there will be a 50-50 chance that the coordinate is inside a cylinder that has a radius of 100 feet and a height of 100 feet.
One of the objectives in coordinate geometry is to express geometric relations in terms of the coordinates of points.
Edmondson [1], in a recent book entitled A Fuller Explanation, explains that 3D space is just a convention, enduring from Descartes to now, a way to introduce a next step in the continuous change of coordinate systems for measurements, which would be a response to the fact that 90[degrees] is now a less natural angle for our environment.
Particles are then mapped onto processors on the basis of their x, y, and z coordinates.
He then generalized the result to produce a formula that relates the curvatures and coordinates of the centers of four mutually tangent circles--just as Descartes had done for curvatures alone.
