# X-axis and Line X = - 4 Are Parallel Lines. What is the Distance Between Them? - Geometry

ConceptEquations of Lines Parallel to the X-axis and Y-axis

#### Question

X-axis and line x = - 4 are parallel lines. What is the distance between them?

#### Solution

Disclaimer: The question is incorrect. The question should be "Y-axis and line x = - 4 are parallel lines. What is the distance between them? or X-axis and line y = - 4 are parallel lines. What is the distance between them?"

If the question is "Y-axis and line x = - 4 are parallel lines. What is the distance between them?" then the answer is as follows.

x = −4 is the equation of the line parallel to the Y-axis at a distance of 4 units and to the left of Y-axis.

Thus, the distance between them is 4 units.

OR

If the question is "X-axis and line y = - 4 are parallel lines. What is the distance between them?" then the answer is as follows.

y = −4 is the equation of the line parallel to the X-axis at a distance of 4 units and below the X-axis.

Thus, the distance between them is 4 units.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
