The given point is plotted on the x-y plane.

The ordinate (y – coordinate) measures the perpendicular distance from the x – axis.

The ordinate of this point is 6.

Therefore, the perpendicular distance of the point from x – axis is **6 units.**

The abscissa (x – coordinate) measures the perpendicular distance from y - axis.

The abscissa of the point is -7.

Therefore, the perpendicular distance of the point from the y – axis is **7 units.**
