What is the distance of the point P (7, -6) from the x-axis and y-axis respectively? (Don't use Distance formula to find your answer)
6 units from the x-axis and 7 units from the y-axis.
The x-coordinate or abscissa is the distance from the y-axis.
The y-coordinate or ordinate is the distance from the x-axis.
The Point P (7, -6 ) has x - coordinate 7 and y - coordinate -6.
∴ The distance of the point from x-axis is 6 units and fromy-axis is 7 units.
