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 (7,4)(\blueD7, \goldD4)

Let's start by going to 7\blueD7 on the xx-axis:
Now we go up 4\goldD4, and plot the point (7,4)(\blueD7, \goldD4):

Practice

Problem 1
Plot the point (2,8)(2, 8).

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

Let's start by going to 5\blueD{-5} on the xx-axis:
Now we go down 9\goldD9, and plot the point (5,9)(\blueD{-5}, \goldD{-9}):

Practice

Problem 2A
Plot the point (3,4)(3, -4).
