On the **Z** = **up**/down method though that is a throw back to mathematicians. because X/Y was drawn on the paper that was flat on the table when the **Z**-axis was extended it was coming **up** out of the paper, and therefore **up**.

The **center** of the **coordinate** system (where the lines intersect) is **called** the origin. The axes intersect when both x and y are zero. The **coordinates** of the origin are (0, 0). An ordered pair contains the **coordinates** of one point in the **coordinate** system.

## Q. How do you spell Cartesian plane?

Correct **spelling** for the English word “**cartesian plane**” is [kɑːtˈiːzi͡ən plˈe͡ɪn], [kɑːtˈiːziən plˈeɪn], [k_ɑː_t_ˈiː_z_iə_n p_l_ˈeɪ_n] (IPA phonetic alphabet).

## Q. How do you do coordinate plane?

To find out the **coordinates** of a point in the **coordinate** system you **do** the opposite. Begin at the point and follow a vertical line either up or down to the x-axis. There is your x-**coordinate**. And then **do** the same but following a horizontal line to find the y-**coordinate**.

## Q. Why is Z up?

**Blender** uses the right hand coordinate system with the **Z** axis pointing upwards. This is common with the coordinate systems used by most common 3D CAD packages. … fbx (or any other similar format, most if not all exporters in **Blender** have this option) to the other application with the ‘**up**‘ axis being **Z** etc.

## Q. Is Y up and down?

The x-axis and **y**-axis are two lines that create the coordinate plane. The x-axis is a horizontal line and the **y**-axis is a vertical line. … Reminder: the x-axis really runs left and right, and the **y**-axis runs **up and down**.

## Q. What does XY mean in math?
