A point on a grid has two numbers to identify its position. These numbers are known as coordinates.
Coordinates are always written as the number of steps across first, then the number of steps up or down.
Grids have two axes. The horizontal axis is called the x-axis and the vertical axis is called the y-axis. These axes can be used to find a point on a grid.
