    from the points that was given (2, 3) i plot it |dw:1437517178811:dw| then draw down a line to the x-axis to make a 90 degree triangle |dw:1437517229077:dw| now since we know the distance on the x axis is 2, and the distance on the y axis is 3, we had to find for x which is the hypotenuse...to find the hypotenuse its |dw:1437517432216:dw|
