## Question:

How to find the origin of a line?

## Origin:

The point at which the two coordinate axes intersect is known as the origin point. The origin is usually labeled as {eq}(0,0). {/eq} We can denote the origin point as {eq}O. {/eq}

## Answer and Explanation:

An origin is a starting point and the coordinates for other points are based on how far that point is from the origin. At the origin, both {eq}X {/eq} and {eq}Y {/eq} are equal to zero and also the {eq}y {/eq}-axis and the {eq}x {/eq}-axis intersect. In general terms, the origin is taken as the beginning point of that line.
