**Question 2:The distance of a point from the y-axis is called its _______, or ________, and the distance of the point from the x-axis is called its ________, or _________.**

**Answer: **The distance of a point from the y-axis is called its **x-coordinate**, or **abscissa,** and the distance of the point from the x-axis is called its **y-coordinate**, or **ordinate**.

**Question 3: The signs of the coordinates of a point are of the form _______ in the first quadrant, _________ in the second quadrant, ______ in the third quadrant and_______ in the fourth quadrant, where + denotes a positive real number and – denotes a negative real number.**

**a. (+ , +), (–, +), (–, –), (+, –) **

**b. (–, +), (–, –), (+, –), (+ , +)**

**c. (–, –), (–, +), (+, –), (+ , +) **

**d. (+ , +), (–, –), (–, +), (+, –)**

**Answer: **(a)

The coordinates of a point are of the form (+ , +) in the first quadrant, (–, +) in the second quadrant, (–, –) in the third quadrant and (+, –) in the fourth quadrant, where + denotes a positive real number and – denotes a negative real number.

**Question 4: Is it possible that (x, y) = (y, x)? Explain.**

**Answer: **Yes (*x*, *y*) = (*y*, *x*) is possible when *x *= *y*.

**Questions 5: At how many points x-axis and y-axis intersect each other in the coordinate axis?**

**Answer: **The x-axis and the y-axis intersect each other at one point and the point of intersection of the axes is called the origin.

**Question 6: Given (5, y) = (y, 5). What is the value of y?**

**Answer: **As we know that (*x*, *y*) = (*y*, *x*) is possible when *x *= *y*. Here *x *= 5, so* y* = 5.

**Question 7: An ant moves 5 meters in the east direction and 5 meters in the south direction. What is the position of the ant in the coordinate axes assuming origin to be the point from where she starts travelling? **

**Answer: **(5, -5).

**Question 8: A person covers 10 meters in the north direction. What is his position in the coordinate axis assuming origin to the point from where he starts travelling?**

**Answer: **(0, 10).

**Question 9: What are the coordinates of origin?**

**Answer:** (0, 0).

**Question 10: What is the distance between the points (0, 5) and (0, -5)? **

**Answer: **10 units.
