## x-axis

i. The longitudinal axis of an aircraft around which the aircraft rolls and banks. Also called a rolling axis.
ii. The horizontal axis in a system of rectangular coordinates. The line on which distances to the right or the left (east or west) of the reference line are marked, especially on a map, chart, or graph.

This implies that suitably rescaling the axes will result in the rescaled generalised parent function plot looking exactly like the parent function plot for the x-axis range from 3 to 4.
Starting at the left end of the x-axis, place 21 short pieces of tape on the string.
As a result, histograms that were identical except for differing position of the center of the distribution along the x-axis could have been interpreted as having identical means but different scales when the intent was to show differing means long x-axes of the same scale.
It's a step backwards along the x-axis, though some people may take misguided comfort in the positive movement along the y-axis.
Put in your labels for the X-axis and Y-axis lines.
It is common practice when plotting profile data to place the distance along the X-axis and the elevation along the Y-axis.
For example, one student wrote the equation y = 5 + 2x given graphical data in which the scale of the x-axis was 2.
The center provides a 900 mm x 520 mm work table and machine capacity of x-axis 30 in.
Adjustable extrusion heads are said to be uniquely capable of changing both x-axis and y-axis dimensions during extrusion by means of spindle-actuated slides for the horizontal plane, and a spindle-actuated upper ledge for adjusting extrusion thickness.
The curve y = 1/x (say for x > 0) harbors many curiosities for the calculus class: for example, the area of a rectangle with lower edge on the x-axis and upper left or right corner resting on the curve depends only on the ratio of the endpoints on the x-axis.
At IMTS, Hessapp will display a dual-spindle lathe with a linear motor on the X-axis feed.
