# Axes Definition

In geometry, an **axes **(plural of axis) is defined as an **imaginary or straight line** on which **graphs are usually presented in a coordinate system**. The properties of the graphs or objects can be determined using coordinates present on these axes.

These axes are represented by x, and y, where x represents vertical line and y represent horizontal lines.
