# 3D Coordinates

In this worksheet, students read 3D coordinates from representations of 3D axes.

Key stage:  KS 4

Curriculum topic:  Geometry and Measures

Curriculum subtopic:  Construct and Interpret Plans and Elevations of 3D Shapes

Difficulty level:

### 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).
