Geometry

Geometry (from the Ancient Greek: γεωμετρία; geo- “earth”, -metron “measurement”) is the branch of mathematics whose primary subject is spatial relationships and shapes of bodies. Geometry studies spatial relationships and shapes while ignoring other properties of real bodies (density, weight, color, etc.).
