## Is horizontally up or down?

The opposite of vertical, something horizontal is arranged sideways, like a person lying down. When you sleep (unless you’re a horse), your body is horizontal: horizontal things are parallel to the ground or running in the same direction as the horizon.

## Is horizontal up or left?

A horizontal line is one which runs left-to-right across the page. In geometry, a horizontal line is one which runs from left to right across the page. It comes from the word ‘horizon’, in the sense that horizontal lines are parallel to the horizon. Its cousin is the vertical line which runs up and down the page.

**Is horizontal left to right?**

Anything parallel to the horizon is called horizontal. As vertical is the opposite of horizontal, anything that makes a 90-degree angle (right angle) with the horizontal or the horizon is called vertical. So, the horizontal line is one that runs across from left to right.

**Is vertical left or right?**

The terms vertical and horizontal often describe directions: a vertical line goes up and down, and a horizontal line goes across. You can remember which direction is vertical by the letter, “v,” which points down.

### Is Left to right vertical or horizontal?

Horizontal lines

Horizontal lines are lines drawn from left to right or right to left and are parallel to the x-axis. Vertical lines are lines drawn up and down and are parallel to the y-axis. Horizontal lines and vertical lines are perpendicular to each other.

### Does horizontal go up and down?

Summary of Horizontal and Vertical Lines Horizontal lines go side to side and have a slope of 0. Vertical lines go up and down and have a slope that is undefined. Graphs of horizontal lines are parallel to the x-axis. Graphs of vertical lines are parallel to the y-axis.

**What is horizontal direction?**

In general or in practice, something that is horizontal can be drawn from left to right (or right to left), such as the x-axis in the Cartesian coordinate system.

**Is vertical front to back?**

Sagittal Plane (Lateral Plane) – A vertical plane running from front to back; divides the body or any of its parts into right and left sides.

#### What direction is horizontal?

So, the horizontal line is one that runs across from left to right.
