# Does It Go Yx or Xy?

July 16, 2022

The x-coordinate always comes first, followed by the y-coordinate.

## What does XY mean in coordinates?

x, y coordinates are respectively the horizontal and vertical addresses of any pixel or addressable point on a computer display screen.

## Which number is on the y-axis?

A y-axis is the vertical axis on the Cartesian coordinate plane. The y-axis starts at negative infinity and increases to positive infinity. The y-axis is also the starting, or 0 point, for measuring how far a point extends horizontally on a graph.

## What does Y X mean?

Chapter 3. Note: A function defines one variable in terms of another. The statement “y is a function of x” (denoted y = y(x)) means that y varies according to whatever value x takes on. A causal relationship is often implied (i.e. “x causes y”), but does not *necessarily* exist.

## How do you graph y x?

Chapter 3. Note: A function defines one variable in terms of another. The statement “y is a function of x” (denoted y = y(x)) means that y varies according to whatever value x takes on. A causal relationship is often implied (i.e. “x causes y”), but does not *necessarily* exist.

## What way does Y go?

The x-axis is usually the horizontal axis, while the y-axis is the vertical axis. They are represented by two number lines that intersect perpendicularly at the origin, located at (0, 0), as shown in the figure below.
