If a piece of paper is a plane in the X & Y axes & the Z axis is a pencil that is stabbed straight down through the paper at the point where the X & Y axes meet, then the coordinates of the center of the hole in the paper are what?

(1,0,1)?

**bobpursley**, Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at 6:45pmThe truth is the origin does not have to be at 0,0,0. The axis are on a graph to provide reference axis, and scales.

But I suppose your teacher is thinking origin as 0,0,0.

Such is life, and we engineers and scientists have to bite our toungue when near math teachers.
