Hi again Sister Serena;

The x coordinate of the horizontal axis, is also known as the abscissa.

The y coordinate of the vertical axis, is also known as the ordinate.

The way I memorize this is

x and y are in alphabetical order...

abscissa and ordinate are in alphabetical order...

horizontal and vertical are in alphabetical order.

In this equation, I believe the

*translation*you are looking for is the conversion of words into formula...x is the abscissa

y is the ordinate

y=x+2

(x, y) ----> (x+2, ???)
