On a graph, you have two axis, x and y. In an ordered pair, the first number is the x coordinate, and the second number is the y coordinate. On the x-axis, if the x-coordinate is negative then you go left. If the x-coordinate is positive, then you go right. On the y-axis, it works the same way. If the y-coordinate is negative, you go down, but if it is positive, then you go up. For example, if you had the ordered pair (-7,4), then you would go left seven spaces on the x-axis and up four spaces on the y-axis.

The standard way is vertical, up-down for the Y axis. The X axis is horizontal, left-right

Positive x- and y-coordinates of a point in the first quadrant.

The x axis is read first when plotting points in the form (x,y) on the xy-plane.

(x,y)

the x axis come first then the y axis

The x-axis comes first. because x comes before y.

Because it is the independent variable, and so the x axis depends on the y axis.

The X axis is the horizontal line. The Y axis is the vertical line.

No, day goes on the x axis and time goes on the y axis.

On a graph, the x-axis comes first. The x-axis can be described as a number line, for which the y-axis rests on. The z-axis rests on both.

The x axis comes first! The Y axis is second!Remember: X,Y,Z!

In notation of coordinates it is the x axis followed by the y axis

The first number is the X axis and the second number is the Y axis

No, typically in a scatter plot, the independent variable goes on the x-axis and the dependent variable goes on the y-axis. So in this case, mass would go on the x-axis and density on the y-axis.

The x axis is first in the coordinates

No the x-axis and y-axis are not in any quadrant. They go between quadrants.
