The distance of the point from the x-axis is the absolute value of it's x coordinate which is 7 so the distance from the x-axis is 7.

Using the same logic we get the absolute value of -2 which is 2 so the distance of the point from the y-axis is 2.

The x=7 from the coordinate, then y=-2. Vertical and horizontal lines are the easiest ^-^

Hope this helps =)
