## Practice Plotting Ordered Pairs & Finding the Quadrant

Instructions:

Answer 7/10 questions correctly to pass.

Give the coordinates of the plotted point as an ordered pair (x, y) and find the quadrant.

Problem:

Correct!

Not Correct!

The correct answer was: 0

Finding the Coordinates of an Ordered Pair:

1. The x-axis is the horizontal axis
2. The y-axis is the vertical axis
3. An ordered pair (point) has coordinates (x, y)
• The x-coordinate is the location on the x-axis
• The y-coordinate is the location on the y-axis

Determine the Quadrant of an Ordered Pair:

1. Quadrant I: (+, +)
• x-values are positive
• y-values are positive
2. Quadrant II: (-, +)
• x-values are negative
• y-values are positive
3. Quadrant III: (-, -)
• x-values are negative
• y-values are negative
4. Quadrant IV: (+, -)
• x-values are positive
• y-values are negative
5. Points on the axes are not in any quadrant
