The point (0,5) lies on the y-axis. What about the point ( 5,0) ?

* The horizontal axis is called the x-axis.
* And the vertical one is the y-axis. Plotting Points on a Graph
Cartesian points are written as x-y pairs in parentheses (x, y). [ To graph a point, first locate its position on the x-axis, then find its location on the y-axis and plot where these meet.
The center point of the graph is called the "origin" and is written as the point (0, 0),

because it is located at the zero point on the x-axis and the zero point on the y-axis. ]
