# Write the abscissae and ordinates of the following points.i) (4, -8)ii) (-5, 3)iii) (0, 0)iv) (5, 0)v) (0, -8)Note : Plural of abscissa is abscissae.

As we know, the abscissa of a point is its x co-odinate and ordinate of a point is its y co-ordinate {if a point≡(x,y)}.

So,

(i) For the point (4,-8) :

abscissa : 4

ordinate : -8

(ii) For the point (-5,3) :

abscissa : -5

ordinate : 3

(iii) For the point (0,0) :

abscissa : 0

ordinate : 0

(iv) For the point (5,0) :

abscissa : 5

ordinate : 0

(v) For the point (0,-8) :

abscissa : 0

ordinate : -8
