You talking about this question Distance of point (-2,3) form y axis ???

Ok??

If (-2,3)=(x1,y1) so where is x2 and y2??

x2 = 0;

y2 = 3;

Yes. They are on the same horizontal line.

Seems you are still a bit confused about the address of points on a graph.

Hi;

What is the address (coordinates) of that blue point?

Ok I take you points (-2,-4)

And

Question distance of (-2,-4) from y axis???

I think it is -2 because we are on negative SIDE? ??

-2? Have you ever had to go someplace and said it was -4 km away? Did you try the distance formula on this problem? Your common sense and the the distance formula will show you that this distance is 2.

First of all when you speak of the distance from A which is located at (-4,-4) which line do you think is the distance of A to the y axis?

When you speak of distance to something we mean the shortest distance else any one of those line segments can apply.
