Question

Find the perpendicular distance of the following points from X-axis:

A) (-3,-2)

B) (2,0)

C) (1,8)


Solution

A pair of Cartesian coordinates (a,b) identifies the position of a point. That point is defined as being on the line x=a where it crosses the line y=b.

So by definition, that point is |b| from the X axis, and |a| from the y axis
THEN
A)2 unit
B)0 unit
C)8 unit
