Define abscissa and ordinate.

Answer:

In the coordinate system, the ordinate is the second component of an ordered pair. For example, if (x, y) is an ordered pair, then y is the ordinate here. An ordered pair is used to denote a point in the Cartesian plane and the first coordinate (x), in the plane, is called the abscissa.

The distance of a point from y-axis scaled with the x-axis is called abscissa or x coordinate of the point. The distance of a point from x-axis scaled with the y-axis is called ordinate. The abscissa and ordinate all together are called coordinates.
