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

Example: Plotting the point left parenthesis, start color blueD, 7, end color blueD, comma, start color goldD, 4, end color goldD, right parenthesis

Let's start by going to start color blueD, 7, end color blueD on the x-axis:
Now we go up start color goldD, 4, end color goldD, and plot the point left parenthesis, start color blueD, 7, end color blueD, comma, start color goldD, 4, end color goldD, right parenthesis:

Practice

Problem 1
Plot the point left parenthesis, 2, comma, 8, right parenthesis.

Example: Plotting the point left parenthesis, start color blueD, minus, 5, end color blueD, comma, start color goldD, minus, 9, end color goldD, right parenthesis

Let's start by going to start color blueD, minus, 5, end color blueD on the x-axis:
Now we go down start color goldD, 9, end color goldD, and plot the point left parenthesis, start color blueD, minus, 5, end color blueD, comma, start color goldD, minus, 9, end color goldD, right parenthesis:

Practice

Problem 2A
Plot the point left parenthesis, 3, comma, minus, 4, right parenthesis.
