Let us consider the given below figure of a study stable, on which a study lamp is placed.

Let us consider the lamp on the table as a point and the table as a plane. From the figure, we can conclude that the table is rectangular in shape, when observed from the top. The table has a short edge and a long edge.

Let us measure the distance of the lamp from the shorter edge and the longer edge. Let us assume that the distance of the lamp from the shorter edge is 15 cm and from the longer edge, its 25 cm.

Therefore, we can conclude that the position of the lamp on the table can be described in two ways depending on the order of the axes as (15, 25) or (25,15).
