# What is the Abscissa of all the points on the y-axis?

In a coordiante system, Abscissa is the distance from y - axis.

## Answer: The Abscissa of all the points on y axis is 0

Let us see a graph and understand what is abscissa and what is an ordinate

# Explanation:

Consider the above point P(3,2) in the X and Y axis

it is 2 units away from the x- axis and 3 units away from the y- axis

Distance from y axis is called abscissa and distance from x-axis is called ordinate.

Now if any point lies on the y axis,its distance from y-axis is 0. that is abcissa is 0.

### Thus, Abscissa of any point on y axis is 0.
