A question about graphs
March 2, 2009 1:34 PM Subscribe
graph paper, what is the mathematically proper name for any random line you see on the page? It wouldn't be "coordinate" since that refers to the line's value. It wouldn't be "grid" since that refers to all of the visible lines. It wouldn't be "axis" since there can be only one in each direction. I'd also be cool with the name for all of the lines (as a set) that are parallel to one another. Thanks!
