# Abscissa of all the points on the x-axis is

a. 0

b. 1

c. 2

d. any number

**Solution:**

We know that

Abscissa and ordinate are used to represent the position of a point on a graph

Abscissa is the coordinates of the x-axis

It is the distance from y-axis measured parallel to x-axis

Distance of a point from the y-axis scaled with x-axis is known as abscissa.

1. Distance of a point from the x-axis scaled with y-axis is known as ordinate.

2. Abscissa and Ordinate together are known as coordinate.

Therefore, the abscissa of all the points on the x-axis is any number.

✦ **Try This: **Point (-5, -2) lies a. on the negative direction of the x-axis, b. on the negative direction of the y-axis, c. in the third quadrant, d. in the fourth quadrant
