Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 1E

The point that is 3 units to the right of the y-axis and 5 units below the x-axis has co-ordinates (3,5).

Explanation of Solution

Any point in the x-y plane is defined in the form of ordered pair (a,b), where a is the coordinate of x-axis and b is the coordinate of y-axis.

This ordered pair is gives the location of any point in x-y plane.

The point is 3 unit to the right of the y-axis means that 3 units in the positive direction of x-axis.

The point is 5 units below the x-axis means the negative direction of y-axis.

Thus, the coordinate of the point is (3,5).
