# Ex.3.2 Q1 Coordinate Geometry Solution - NCERT Maths Class 9

## Question

Write the answer of each of the following questions:

(i) What is the name of horizontal and the vertical lines drawn to determine the position of any point in the Cartesian plane?

(ii) What is the name of each part of the plane formed by these two lines?

(iii) Write the name of the point where these two lines intersect.

## Text Solution

**Steps:**

(i) The horizontal line that is drawn to determine the position of any point in the Cartesian plane is called as ** \(x-\)axis**. The vertical line that is drawn to determine the position of any point in the Cartesian plane is called as

**.**

*\(y-\)axis*(ii) The name of each part of the plane that is formed by x-axis and y-axis is called as quadrant.

(iii) The point, where the \(x-\)axis and the \(y-\)axis intersect is called as origin \((O).\)
