Dear Sir/Mam,can you please explain me three dimensional motion?

Motion of a housefly, an aeroplane, a football etc can be described with 3 coordinates, x, y and z.
Lets look at the following situation. You are allowed to move only along straight lines. You wish to specify the location of a fan in your room. What will you do? First you choose some corner of the room as the origin. Then you move distance x along the length of the room and distance y along the width of the room. Finally you climb a certain distance z along the height of the room. For the position vector of the fan we will need x, y and z coordinates.
To specify the position of such an object we need to use x, y and z coordinates.
