The 2nd quadrant and 4th quadrant would be where a point would lie if it's abscissa and ordinate are numerically equal but of opposite signs.

2nd and 3rd quadrant

In Quadrant I a point would lie if its abscissa and ordinates are equal.

The ordinate and abscissa are equal for every point on the line [ y = x ].

A point with those properties is on the negative-y axis . . . the boundary line between Quadrants III and IV.

Coordinate is the common name. Abscissa is used for the information along the X-axis. Ordinate is used for the information along Y-axis. So abscissa is the x co-ordinate, and ordinate is the y co-ordinate. As they are both negative, then the point must be located in the third quadrant.

The vertical axis of a graph is known as the ordinate and the horizontal axis of a graph is known as the abscissa. So commonly when talking about (x,y) as a point on the graph, we refer to x value as the abscissa and y value as the ordinate.

The 'abscissa' is the x coordinate on the Cartesian plane and the 'ordinate' is the y coordinate on the Cartesian plane

The parts of a cartesian coordinate system include the origin (point 0,0), the x-axis or abscissa, the y-axis or ordinate, and the quadrants into which the x and y axes divide the plane.
