How will you describe the position of a table lamp on your study table to another person?
To describe the position of a table lamp on the study table, we have to take two lines, a perpendicular and horizontal on the table.
Considering the table as a plane and taking the perpendicular line as Y-axis and horizontal as X-axis.
Take one corner of the table as origin where both X and Y axes intersect each other.
Now, the length of the table is X-axis and breadth is Y-axis. The red dot indicates a lamp.
Measure the distance of this point from both X and Y axes and then write it in terms of coordinates.
Let the distance of the point from Y-axis be 'x' and from X-axis be 'y'.
Then the position of the table lamp in terms of coordinates is (x,y).
