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. The distance of a point from the y-axis, scaled with the x-axis, is called abscissa or x coordinate of the point.

## What is ordinate and abscissa in coordinate?

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. The distance of a point from the y-axis, scaled with the x-axis, is called abscissa or x coordinate of the point.

## What is the XY coordinate?

x, y coordinates are respectively the horizontal and vertical addresses of any pixel or addressable point on a computer display screen. The x coordinate is a given number of pixels along the horizontal axis of a display starting from the pixel (pixel 0) on the extreme left of the screen.

**What is abscissa and ordinate Class 9?**

Abscissa is the distance from a point to the vertical or y -axis, measured parallel to the horizontal or x -axis. It is also known as the x -coordinate. Ordinate is the distance from a point to the horizontal or x -axis, measured parallel to the vertical or y -axis. It is also known as the y -coordinate.

### What do you call a set of ordinates?

Definition. The range of a relation is the collection of all ordinates of each ordered pair. Thus, the range of the relation R in (2) is Range ={1,2,4} Let’s look at an example.

### How do you find XY coordinates?

To find out the coordinates of a point in the coordinate system you do the opposite. Begin at the point and follow a vertical line either up or down to the x-axis. There is your x-coordinate. And then do the same but following a horizontal line to find the y-coordinate.

**What is ordinate axis?**

Also called axis of ordinates. (in a plane Cartesian coordinate system) the axis, usually vertical, along which the ordinate is measured and from which the abscissa is measured. (in a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system) the axis along which values of y are measured and at which both x and z equal zero.

## What is abscissa BYJU’s?

The coordinates of the X-axis on the cartesian plane is called abscissa. It is the distance measure from Y-axis measured parallel to X-axis.
