## What are the abscissa and ordinate of the origin?

Origin has zero distance from both the axes so that its abscissa and ordinate are both zero. Therefore, the coordinates of the origin are (0, 0).

**Who introduced the word coordinate abscissa and ordinate?**

Though the word “abscissa” (Latin; “linea abscissa”, “a line cut off”) has been used at least since De Practica Geometrie published in 1220 by Fibonacci (Leonardo of Pisa), its use in its modern sense may be due to Venetian mathematician Stefano degli Angeli in his work Miscellaneum Hyperbolicum, et Parabolicum of 1659 …

**What is the origin of the abscissa?**

Answer: The abscissa of origin is zero(0).

### What is ordinate and abscissa in coordinate?

Ordinate and 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.

**What is Y-coordinate called?**

x-coordinate is called as abscissa and y-coordinate is called as ordinate. Both coordinates (x,y) represents a point in a plane. Mathematics.

**What is the other name for Y-coordinate?**

the ordinate

Another name for the y-coordinate is the ordinate. Note: The x-coordinate or abscissa represents the directed distance of the point from the y-axis.

#### What is the other name for the y coordinate?

**What is Y coordinate called?**

**What is the other term for y coordinate?**

Another name for the y-coordinate is the ordinate. Note: The x-coordinate or abscissa represents the directed distance of the point from the y-axis.

## What is the other term for y-coordinate?

**How do you find the Y coordinate?**

The Y Coordinate is always written second in an ordered pair of coordinates (x,y) such as (12,5). In this example, the value “5” is the Y Coordinate.

**What is a Y coordinate?**

Definition of y-coordinate : a coordinate whose value is determined by measuring parallel to a y-axis specifically : ordinate.
