# What is X co ordinate?

## What is X co ordinate?

The x – coordinate is also called the abscissa. (ii) The y – coordinate of a point is its perpendicular distance from the x – axis measured along the y – axis (positive along the positive direction of the y – axis and negative along the negative direction of the y – axis).

## What is an example of the x-coordinate?

The x-coordinate is typically the first of the two numbers and is the x value of the pair. For example, for the ordered pair (6,5), the x-coordinate is ‘6’, meaning that on a Cartesian plane, a 2-dimensional graph, you’ll move 6 units down the x-axis.

**What is the x-coordinate of a relation?**

A relation is a set of ordered pairs. The first coordinate (usually the x-coordinate) is called the domain and the second (usually the y-coordinate) is called the range.

**Why is the x-coordinate first?**

The x-coordinate is 1 because it comes first in the ordered pair. Start at the origin and move a distance of 1 unit in a positive direction (to the right) from the origin along the x-axis. The y-coordinate is 3 because it comes second in the ordered pair.

### Does the x-coordinate come first?

Each point can be identified by an ordered pair of numbers; that is, a number on the x-axis called an x-coordinate, and a number on the y-axis called a y-coordinate. The order in which you write x- and y-coordinates in an ordered pair is very important. The x-coordinate always comes first, followed by the y-coordinate.

### Is the x-coordinate positive or negative?

Quadrant I: Both x and y-coordinate are positive. Quadrant II: x-coordinate is negative and y-coordinate is positive.

**Does X or Y come first in coordinates?**

The x-coordinate always comes first, followed by the y-coordinate. As you can see in the coordinate grid below, the ordered pairs (3,4) and (4,3) are two different points!

**Does the X coordinate come first?**

## Is the X coordinate positive or negative?

## Is X Up or down?

The x-axis and y-axis are two lines that create the coordinate plane. The x-axis is a horizontal line and the y-axis is a vertical line.

**Is X vertical or horizontal?**

X-axis is the axis of the cartesian plane which represents the horizontal axis. The graph points plotted on the x-axis are from left to right. Y-axis is the axis of the cartesian plane which represents the vertical axis.

**What is the x coordinate called?**

Abscissa. The abscissa is another name for the x (horizontal) coordinate of a point. Pronounced “ab-SISS-ah” (the ‘c;’ is silent). Not used very much. Most commonly, the term “x-coordinate” is used.

### What does the x coordinate mean?

Definition of x-coordinate. : a coordinate whose value is determined by measuring parallel to an x-axis specifically : abscissa .

### Do you write the X or y coordinate first?

The first number refers to the -coordinate. The second number refers to the -coordinate. Coordinates are written alphabetically – so x comes before y (x, y). One way to remember is ‘you go along the hallway before you go up the stairs’.

**What is the definition of x coordinate?**

Definition of x-coordinate. : a coordinate whose value is determined by measuring parallel to an x-axis; specifically : abscissa.
