Why do the planets in your solar system have the same x-coordinate in a 3d coordinate system?

All the planets stay approximately in one plane - the plane of the ecliptic. So if you have the x-coordinate normal to that plane their x-coordinates will stay small. It is more usual to have the z-coordinate normal to the plane.

What is x-coordinate in math?

The x-coordinate is the horizontal part of what is known as the cartesian plane, which is the 2D representation of dimensioning. This is a cartesian plane: /\ <------------- that's an arrow, which means it extends indefinitely. | | | <-----------|----------> X ( this is the x coordinate, the horizontal part of the cartesian plane) | | | V Y (This is the y coordinate, the vertical part) jhj

When plotting in math is it the x axis first or the y axis?
