Given:

Point $P (2,\ 3)$.

To do:

We have to find the distance of the point $P (2,\ 3)$ from the $x-axis$.

Solution:

As given, $P (2,\ 3)$,

Co-ordinate of $x-axis=( 2,\ 0)$

Therefore, distance of the point $P (2,\ 3)$ from the $x-axis=\sqrt{( 2-2)^2+( 0-3)^2}$

$=\sqrt{0+9}$

$=\sqrt{9}$

$=3\ units$

Thus, the distance of the point $P (2,\ 3)$ from the $x-axis$ is $3\ units$.
