In this article, we're going to plot points in the coordinate plane. We'll start in the first quadrant.

### Example: Plotting the point $(\blueD7, \goldD4)$

Let's start by going to $\blueD7$ on the $x$-axis:

Now we go up $\goldD4$, and plot the point $(\blueD7, \goldD4)$:

### Practice

### Example: Plotting the point $(\blueD{-5}, \goldD{-9})$

Let's start by going to $\blueD{-5}$ on the $x$-axis:

Now we go down $\goldD9$, and plot the point $(\blueD{-5}, \goldD{-9})$:
