What are coordinates ?

Coordinates of a point is defined as:

A(*x*, *y*)

where *x* is the distance from *y* axis, *y* is the distance from *x* axis .

Say there is a point A whose coordinates are (5, 4)

This means that the point A is at a distance of 5 from *y-*axis and at a distance of 4 from the *x*-axis.
