# See Fig. 3.14, 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.

**Solution:**

(i) The coordinates of point B are the distance of point B from the x-axis and y-axis. Therefore, the coordinates of point B are (-5, 2).

(ii) The coordinates of point C are the distance of point C from the x-axis and y-axis. Therefore, the coordinates of point C are (5, -5).

iii) The point that represents the coordinates (-3, -5) is E.

iv) The point that represents the coordinates (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 coordinates of point L in the above figure are the distance of point L from the x-axis and y-axis. Therefore, the coordinates of point L are (0, 5).

viii) The coordinates of point M in the above figure are the distance of point M from the x-axis and y-axis. Therefore, the coordinates of point M are (-3, 0).

**Video Solution:**

## 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.
