# The point (3, 4) is at a distance of

(a) 3 from both the axis

(b) 4 from both the axis

(c) 4 from the x axis and 3 from y axis

(d) 3 from x axis and from y axis

**Solution:**

The point (3, 4) is shown in the graph below.

From the above graph it is evident that point (3, 4) is 3 units from the y axis and 4 units from the __x-axis__.

Hence the correct choice of answer is (c).

**✦ Try This: **The point (5, 2) is at a distance of (a) 5 from both the axis, (b) 2 from both the axis, (c) 5 from the x axis and 2 from y axis, (d) 2 from x axis and 5 from y axis

As evident from the graph below the point (5, 2) is 5 units from the y axis and 2 units from the x axis.
