# Ex.3.2 Q2 Coordinate Geometry Solution - NCERT Maths Class 9

## Question

See the given figure, and write the following:

(i)The coordinates of \(B.\)

(ii) The coordinates of \(C.\)

(iii) The point identified by the coordinates (\(–3, –5\)).

(iv) The point identified by the coordinates (\(2, –4\)).

(v) The abscissa of the point \(D.\)

(vi) The ordinate of the point \(H.\)

(vii) The coordinates of the point \(L.\)

(viii)The coordinates of the point \(M.\)

## Text Solution

**Steps:**

From the Figure above,

(i) The co-ordinates of point \(B\) is the distance of point \(B\) from *\(x-\)axis* and \( y-\)*axis*. Therefore, the co-ordinates of point \(B\) are (\(–5, 2\)).

(ii) The co-ordinates of point \(C\) is the distance of point \(C\) from *\(x-\)axis* and *\(y-\)axis*. Therefore, the co-ordinates of point \(C\) are (\(5, –5\)).

(iii) The point that represents the co-ordinates (\(–3, –5\)) is \(E.\)

(iv) The point that represents the co-ordinates (\(2, –4\)) is \(G.\)

(v) The abscissa of point \(D\) is the distance of point \(D\) from the *\(y-\)axis*. Therefore, the abscissa of point \(D\) is \(6.\)

(vi) The ordinate of point \(H\) is the distance of point \(H\) from the *\(x-\)axis*. Therefore, the abscissa of point \(H\) is \(–3.\)

(vii) The co-ordinates of point \(L\) in the above figure is the distance of point \(L\) from *\(x-\)axis* and *\(y-\)axis*. Therefore, the co-ordinates of point \(L\) are (\(0, 5\)).

(viii) The co-ordinates of point \(M\) in the above figure is the distance of point \(M\) from *\(x-\)axis* and *\(y-\)axis*. Therefore, the co-ordinates of point \(M\) are (\(–3, 0\)).
