## Do you look at the x or y-axis first?

To plot a single point on the axis, we start with a coordinate, which is a pair of points each representing a distance travelled on an axis. The x-axis comes first, and then the y-axis.

**Is left and right x or y-axis?**

Reminder: the x-axis really runs left and right, and the y-axis runs up and down.

### Which side is X which side is Y?

The horizontal axis is usually called the x-axis. The vertical axis is usually called the y-axis.

**Can the y-axis be on the right?**

Actually, the Y axis can be moved to left, right or middle as you need. In this article, I tell you how to move the Y axis in Excel chart.

#### Which side is Y on a graph?

A graph consists of a horizontal axis and a vertical axis where data can be represented. A point can be described in a horizontal way or a vertical way, which can be easily understood using a graph. These horizontal and vertical lines or axis in a graph are the x-axis and y-axis respectively.

**Does the y-axis have to be on the left?**

Unless you design for a Right-To-Left language environment, placing the Y-axis on the left makes perfect sense. However, left-side Y-axis isn’t a hard rule. In many cases, more importance is given to the most recent data point.

## Which variable goes on which axis?

The independent variable belongs on the x-axis (horizontal line) of the graph and the dependent variable belongs on the y-axis (vertical line). The x and y axes cross at a point referred to as the origin, where the coordinates are (0,0).

**Is the y-axis on the side?**

Scientists like to say that the “independent” variable goes on the x-axis (the bottom, horizontal one) and the “dependent” variable goes on the y-axis (the left side, vertical one).

### Is y-axis north or south?

The X-axis running through this origin runs east-west, and the Y-axis runs north-south.

**How do you know which variable goes on which axis?**

#### What side does Y go on?

**How do I know which axis to label?**

To properly label a graph, you should identify which variable the x-axis and y-axis each represent. Don’t forget to include units of measure (called scale) so readers can understand each quantity represented by those axes. Finally, add a title to the graph, usually in the form “y-axis variable vs. x-axis variable.”

## How do you know which axis is which?

The Axes. The independent variable belongs on the x-axis (horizontal line) of the graph and the dependent variable belongs on the y-axis (vertical line). The x and y axes cross at a point referred to as the origin, where the coordinates are (0,0).

**Which way is XYZ?**

When performing precision shaft alignment on horizontal rotating machinery, the Z axis refers to the rotational axis or rotational centerlines. The Y axis refers to vertical position (perpendicular to the base) and the X axis refers to the horizontal position (parallel to the base).

### How do you remember the XYZ axis?

The x-axis is horizontal, and the y-axis is vertical. One way to remember which axis is which is ‘x is a cross so the -axis is across’.

**How do you remember which axis is which?**

#### Which point is on the y-axis?

For example, (0,5) is a point that lies on y axis.

**How do you remember XYZ?**

Coordinates are written alphabetically – so x comes before y (x, y). One way to remember is ‘you go along the hallway before you go up the stairs’.

## Is vertical axis Y or Z?

The coordinate surfaces of the Cartesian coordinates (x, y, z). The z-axis is vertical and the x-axis is highlighted in green.

**What is the Z axis called?**

It’s called the Applical axis as it is used for many different applications, as in computer engineering the Applical axis is used as intensity when plotting two wave forms on a Cartesian plane and in physics it’s used as depth.

### Why is it called XYZ axis?

An X-Y-Z matrix is a three-dimensional structure whereby the x-axis and y-axis denote the first two dimensions and the z-axis is the third dimension. In a graphic image, the x denotes width, y denotes height and the z represents depth.

**What is the order of the axis?**

Coordinate Systems

- Mathematical. Axis Order (X,Y) Signed values, increase to the right und upwards.
- Computer Graphics. Axis Order (X,Y) Unsigned values increase to the bottom and to the right.
- Geographical Coordinate Systems. Axis Order varies, sometimes (Y,X), othertimes (X,Y)

#### What lies on the left of y-axis?

The point with negative X coordinate will lie on the left of Y – axis .

**Which lies to right of y-axis?**

C. (3,5) lies right of y axis… It can be known by ploting points. if it is correct then mark brainliest.

## Which direction is XYZ?

The x axis is in the plane of the screen and is positive toward the right and negative toward the left. The y axis is in the plane of the screen and is positive toward the top and negative toward the bottom. The z axis is perpendicular to the screen or keyboard, and is positive extending outward from the screen.
