## What is the Y axis called?

ordinate

In common usage, the abscissa refers to the horizontal (x) axis and the ordinate refers to the vertical (y) axis of a standard two-dimensional graph.

**What is abscissa of a point?**

Definition of abscissa : the horizontal coordinate of a point in a plane Cartesian coordinate system obtained by measuring parallel to the x-axis — compare ordinate.

### What is abscissa is also known as?

The abscissa is also known as the “x” coordinate of a point, shown on the horizontal line, with the ordinate, also known as the “y” coordinate, shown on the vertical line.

**What is Y coordinate?**

Definition of y-coordinate : a coordinate whose value is determined by measuring parallel to a y-axis specifically : ordinate.

#### What is the abscissa of (- 3 5 )?

3

So,abscissa of point (3,5) is 3.

**Which is ordinate and abscissa?**

Ordinate and Abscissa The distance of a point from y-axis scaled with the x-axis is called abscissa or x coordinate of the point. The distance of a point from x-axis scaled with the y-axis is called ordinate. The abscissa and ordinate all together are called coordinates.

## What is the value of abscissa in y-axis?

0

So Abscissa of any point on y axis is 0.

**How do you write ordinate and abscissa?**

We know that abscissa starts with A and ordinate starts with O, and A comes before O, similar to X comes before Y, thus A matches X and O matches Y. And hence abscissa = x-axis and Ordinate = y-axis.

### What is the line YX?

In a 2-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system, with x representing the abscissa and y the ordinate, the identity line or line of equality is the y = x line.

**What does XY mean in maths?**

In the same way, xy means multiply the variable x by the variable y and 7xy means multiply the variable x by the variable y and multiply the whole thing by 7. The BODMAS rules mentioned in Numbers apply to algebra also. For example, x2 + 3(2y + 4) means: 1. multiply y by 2.

#### What is Y value?

The vertical value in a pair of coordinates. How far up or down the point is. The Y Coordinate is always written second in an ordered pair of coordinates (x,y) such as (12,5). In this example, the value “5” is the Y Coordinate. Also called “Ordinate”

**What is abscissa of the point 5 2?**

Assertion: The abscissa of a point (5, 2) is 5.

## What is abscissa of the point 7 5?

For point A(7,5), the abscissa is 7.
