**1. Write the answer of each of the following questions:**

**(i) What is the name of horizontal and the vertical lines drawn to determine the position ****of any point in the Cartesian plane?**

**(ii) What is the name of each part of the plane formed by these two lines?**

**(iii) Write the name of the point where these two lines intersect.**

**Solution :**

(i) The name of horizontal lines and vertical lines drawn to determine the position of any point in the Cartesian plane is **abscissa or x-axis** and **ordinate or y-axis** respectively.

(ii) The two lines divide the coordinate plane into four parts each called a **Quadrant.**(iii) The two lines intersect at

**origin.**

**2. ****See Fig. below, and write the following:**

**(i) The coordinates of B.**

**(ii) The coordinates of C.**

**(iii) The point identified by the coordinates (–3, –5).**

**(iv) The point identified by the coordinates (2, – 4).**

**(v) The abscissa of the point D.**

**(vi) The ordinate of the point H.**

**(vii) The coordinates of the point L.**

**(viii) The coordinates of the point M.**

**Solution :**

(i) The coordinates of B = (-5,2)

(ii) The coordinates of C = (5,-5)

(iii) The point identified by the coordinates (–3, –5) = E

(iv) The point identified by the coordinates (2, – 4) = G

(v) The abscissa of the point D = 6

(vi) The ordinate of the point H = -3

(vii) The coordinates of the point L = (0,5)

(viii) The coordinates of the point M = (-3 , 0)
