## What is the X line on a graph?

Glossary and Terms: Graphs and Lines. Abscissa – **The horizontal line, or x-axis, of a graph.**

## Where is the X on a line graph?

The line graph consists of a horizontal x-axis and a vertical y-axis. Most line graphs only deal with positive number values, so these axes typically intersect **near the bottom of the y-axis and the left end of the x-axis**

## What is the horizontal line on a graph called?

In the Cartesian coordinate system, the horizontal reference line is called **x-axis. Therefore, the horizontal line in a bar graph is called x-axis.**

## Is X the bottom line on a graph?

The vertical axis of the bar graph is called the y-axis, while the bottom of a bar graph is called **the x-axis.**

## What does X mean on a graph?

**The horizontal axis is usually called the x-axis. The vertical axis is usually called the y-axis.**

## Is X horizontal or vertical line?

A line parallel to the x-axis is called a **horizontal line. The graph of a relation of the form x x3d 5 is a line parallel to the y-axis because the x value never changes.**

## Where does the X go on a line graph?

The independent variable belongs on the x-axis (**horizontal line) of the graph and the dependent variable belongs on the y-axis (vertical line).**

## What is X on a line graph?

Line graphs consist of two axes: x-axis (horizontal) and y-axis (vertical). Each axis represents a different data type, and the points at which they intersect is (0,0). The x-axis is **the independent axis because its values are not dependent on anything measured.**

## Is X on the bottom or side of a graph?

Scientists like to say that the independent variable goes on the x-axis (**the bottom, horizontal one) and the dependent variable goes on the y-axis (the left side, vertical one).**

## Where is X and Y on a line graph?

The line graph consists of a **horizontal x-axis and a vertical y-axis. Most line graphs only deal with positive number values, so these axes typically intersect near the bottom of the y-axis and the left end of the x-axis.**
