# What is the x and y-axis on a coordinate plane?

## What is the x and y-axis on a coordinate plane?

A coordinate grid has two perpendicular lines, or axes (pronounced AX-eez), labeled just like number lines. The horizontal axis is usually called the x-axis. The vertical axis is usually called the y-axis. The point where the x- and y-axis intersect is called the origin.

## What is x-axis and y-axis together called?

they are together called as coordinate axes. (axes is plural of axis.)

What is the angle which x-axis and y-axis intersect?

X= axis and Y=axis intersect at right angle.

### What is the measure of the angle formed by the X and y-axis?

Degrees. Starting from the positive x-axis, the point P travels around the circle in a counter-clockwise manner. When it arrives at the positive y-axis (a quarter of the way around the circle) its angle measures 90°. When it reaches the negative x-axis (and is now halfway around the circle), its angle measures 180°.

### What is the point of intersection of x-axis and y-axis?

Thus, the point of intersection of X and Y axes is called origin.

What are the coordinates of the point of intersection of x-axis and y-axis?

The coordinates of the point of intersection of x-axis and y-axis is (0, 0).

## How does the Y axis relate to the x axis?

The y-axis measures up-down changes greater and less than 0. Vertical lines, lines at right angles to those horizontal lines, would be the x-axis of your system. Though x-axis lines run up and down, they measure distances to the left and right of the origin, or center of the coordinate system.

## Which is the horizontal axis of the coordinate plane?

It consists of a horizontal axis and a vertical axis, number lines that intersect at right angles. (They are perpendicular to each other.) The horizontal axis in the coordinate plane is called the x-axis. The vertical axis is called the y-axis. The point at which the two axes intersect is called the origin.

How to Plot X and y axis plane in Cartesian coordinate system?

On a Cartesian coordinate system, those points line up like this: Plotting a line with the x-intercept and y-intercept is just about as easy as the table method. Set x to 0 for the first point; set y to 0 for the second point. Just as a reminder, our equation was x + y = 8 x + y = 8.

### Which is the correct direction to go along the x axis?

Starting from the origin, go along the x- axis in a positive direction (right) and along the y- axis in a positive direction (up). Starting from the origin, go along the x- axis in a negative direction (left) and along the y- axis in a positive direction (up).
