# FAQ: What Do You Call X And Y In Math?

## What is X and Y in math?

The x -axis and y -axis are axes in the Cartesian coordinate system. 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.

## What does YX mean?

## What is Y Y in math?

The vertical value in a pair of coordinates. How far up or down the point is. The Y Coordinate is always written second in an ordered pair of coordinates (x, y ) such as (12,5). In this example, the value “5” is the Y Coordinate. Also called “Ordinate”

## What is y math algebra?

In pre- algebra, y is a variable. It holds the place of number that we may not know just yet. It’s a symbol we use when we don’t know how many we have of something or when the number of them can change.

## What is the rule for Y X?

When you reflect a point across the line y = x, the x -coordinate and y -coordinate change places. If you reflect over the line y = – x, the x -coordinate and y -coordinate change places and are negated (the signs are changed). the line y = x is the point ( y, x ).

## What does B stand for math?

bisector. Base. In geometry, the base of a shape is the side (usually the bottom) that forms a right (90 degree) angle with the height of the object.
