Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

3D coordinates take the form of three numbers, separated by commas in brackets.  The order of the coordinates is x, y and then z.

The point P is shown below with coordinates (x, y, z).

 

 

Example

The point P is shown below.  What are its coordinates?

 

P is below the xy-plane so the z-coordinate is negative.

P is at (2, 3, -5).
