**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) x – axis and y – axis

(ii) quadrants

(iii) origin

**See the figure 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:
