"Abscissas" means x-values, while "ordinates" means y-values.

So the question means "where on the rectangular system do we have x = y for all points (x, y)?"

In other words, we want a line connecting points like `(-3, -3)` and `(0, 0)` and `(5, 5)` and `(700, 700)`.

The line we want cuts the first and third quadrants in half at `45^@`. We can write this line as y = x.

1 2 3 4 -1 -2 -3 -4 1 2 -1 -2 -3 -4 x y
`y=x`
