# On Which Axis Do the Following Points Lie? R(−4,0) - SSC (Marathi Semi-English) 10th - Geometry

#### Question

On which axis do the following points lie?

R(−4,0)

#### Solution

According to the Rectangular Cartesian Co-ordinate system of representing a point (x, y),

If x >  0, y > 0 then the point lies in the 1st quadrant

If x < 0, y > 0 then the point lies in the 2nd quadrant

If x < 0, y < 0  then the point lies in the 3rd quadrant

If x > 0, y < 0 then the point lies in the 4th quadrant

But in case

if x = 0, y != 0then the point lies on the y-axis

if y =0, x != 0 then the point lies on the x-axis

Here the point is given to be (-4, 0). Comparing this with the standard form of (x, y) we have

x = -4

y = 0

Here we see that y = 0, x != 0

Hence the given point lies on the x-axis

Is there an error in this question or solution?
