The x-axis and the y-axis


Line and bar graphs always have an x-axis and a y-axis.

Click on the words below to see the x and y axes on this graph.

  • The x-axis signals the horizontal axis
  • The y-axis signals the vertical axis.

You need to find out what this individual axis represents in the graph.
