Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it looks like your point has so much x, about the same amount of y, and z=0 (no up/down)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0imagine starting at the origin and walking along the xaxis until you are as close as you can get to the point (i.e. if you continue walking on the xaxis you would be moving further away). then walk in the y direction until you are as close as possible. At this point you should be directly above or below the point (if you are not at it!). go up or down until you are at the point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok and going down the x axis from the origin is positive right? and also, would the y value be the number of spaces i moved from the x axis or the invisible number in the y line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x axis from the origin is positive right? that depends on which direction is labeled positive. In your picture, you move along the positive xaxis assuming you are using a standard "righthanded coordinate system" *** y value be the number of spaces i moved from the x axis or the invisible number in the y line?**** the distance you move from the xaxis (in the y direction) should match the number on the yaxis. dw:1439498607337:dw
