Wolfram|Alpha is a computational knowledge engine. It is similar to a search engine but does not search the web. It is capable of computing answers to problems, and it retrieves facts. You can use it for questions about mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, weather, food, nutrition and music. Coordinates are used to indicate the position of a point on a graph. An example of a generic coordinate is (x, y). Wolfram|Alpha can graph coordinates through its web interface.
