Dear student,
x axis:the principal or horizontal axis of a system of coordinates, points along which have a value of zero for all other coordinates.
y axis:vertical axis of a system of coordinates, points along which have a value of zero for all other coordinates.
Generally, we plot independent variable on x axis and the dependent variable which varies in terms of x in y axis.
A straight horizontal represents x axis and exactly at 90$\circ$ y axis is drawn in a graph. For other query start a new thread.
You are requested to do proper tagging even in this question tagging is not proper tagging. Proper tagging will result in rapid assistance
