Review the parts of a coordinate plane, and try some practice problems.

Axes

A coordinate plane has one horizontal axis, the start color blueD, x, negative, a, x, i, s, end color blueD and one vertical axis, the start color greenD, y, negative, a, x, i, s, end color greenD.

Origin

The start color blueD, x, negative, a, x, i, s, end color blueD and start color greenD, y, negative, a, x, i, s, end color greenD intersect at the start color goldD, o, r, i, g, i, n, end color goldD. The start color goldD, o, r, i, g, i, n, end color goldD is located at ordered pair, left parenthesis, 0, comma, 0, right parenthesis.

Quadrants

The coordinate plane is divided into four quadrants. Quadrant one (QI) is the top right fourth of the coordinate plane, where there are only positive coordinates. Quadrant two (QII) is the top left fourth of the coordinate plane. Quadrant three (QIII) is the bottom left fourth. Quadrant four (QIV) is the bottom right fourth.
