# The coordinates of a point at a distance

Question:

The coordinates of a point at a distance of 3 units from the X-axis and 6 units from the y-axis are

(a) (0,3)

(b) (6,0)

(c) (3,6)

(d) (6,3)

Solution:

(d) We know that, the x-coordinate is the distance of the point from /-axis and the y-coordinate is the distance of the point from X-axis.

Hence, the coordinates of the required point are (6,3).
