the first is x and the second is y

example~ (3,5)

You go across 3 and up 5

just remember, run and jump!

### What is the second number in ordered pair that tells the distance to move up or down form the origin?

It is the ordinate.

### Why are (46) and (64) are not at the same point on a grid?

Because the first number refers to the abscissa: the distance to the right of the origin whereas the second number refers to the ordinate: distance in the upward direction.Because the first number refers to the abscissa: the distance to the right of the origin whereas the second number refers to the ordinate: distance in the upward direction.Because the first number refers to the abscissa: the distance to the right of the origin whereas the second number refers to the ordinate: distance in the upward direction.Because the first number refers to the abscissa: the distance to the right of the origin whereas the second number refers to the ordinate: distance in the upward direction.

### When the first number in an ordered pair is 0 where is the point located?

The first number in an ordered pair (of rectangular coordinates) is the distance from the origin along the x- axis. If the number is 0, then any point having this coordinate must lie on the y-axis. If the second number is 0 then the point is at the origin (0,0). If the second number is positive then the point lies on the y-axis above the origin. If the second number is negative then the point lies on the y-axis below the origin.

### What is the first value in ordered pair and second value?

First value: abscissa, is the distance from the origin along the horizontal axis (usually the x-axis). Second value: ordinate, is the distance from the origin along the vertical axis (usually the y-axis).

### What is the second number in ordered pair which indicates the vertical distance of a point from which the origin on the coordinate plane called?

It is the y- coordinate and trust me that's the right answer i was looking 4 it 2 and i found it so ....yeah

### Second number of an ordered pair?

The second number in an ordered pair (x,y) is the y-coordinate for that point.

### Why is an ordered pair important?

It is only important in the context of two dimensional coordinate geometry. If based on Cartesian coordinates, the first element of the ordered pair associated with any point gives the horizontal distance and the second the vertical distance of the point from a fixed origin. In a radial system, the first gives the distance and the second the angle (with respect to the right horizontal line going to the right). There are other options as well.

### What first number in an ordered pair that tells the difference to move right or left?

It is called the abscissa, or the x-coordinate. The second number, which tells up and down distance, is called the ordinate.

### What is the name of the second number in an ordered pair?

It is the ORDINATE.

The y coordinate
