The distance of the point P(2, 3) from the X-axis is
(b) We know that, if (x, y) is any point on the cartesian plane in first quadrant.
Then, x = Perpendicular distance from Y-axis
and y = Perpendicular distance from X-axis
Distance of the point P(2, 3) from the X-axis = Ordinate of a point P(2, 3)= 3.
