# Graph points review (positive numbers only)

CCSS Math: 5.G.A.2
Review graphing points and identifying points on quadrant I of a coordinate plane.  Then, try some practice problems.

### Graphing points in the coordinate plane

Points in the coordinate plane are identified by coordinates given in the form $(\blueD{x},\greenD{y})$.
The $x$-coordinate represents a value on the$\blueD{\text{ horizontal}}$ axis.
The $y$-coordinate represents a value on the $\greenD{\text{vertical}}$ axis.
Example:
Plot the point $(6, 4)$.
For $( \blueD{6}, \greenD{4})$ our $x$-coordinate is $\blueD6$, and our $y$-coordinate is $\greenD4$.
Let's start by going right to $\blueD{6}$ on the $x$-axis:
Now we go up to $\greenD4$ on the $y$-axis, and plot the point $(\blueD{6}, \greenD{4})$:

## Identifying points

To determine the coordinates (or ordered pair) of a given point, we need to count the $\blueD{\text{horizontal}}$ and $\greenD{\text{vertical}}$ distance of the point from the $\redD{\text{origin (0, 0)}}$.
Example:
Use the following coordinate plane to determine the ordered pair for the given point.
Let's start by counting the distance from $(0, 0)$ to the given point on the $x$-axis:
The point is $\blueD3$ units to the right of the origin.
Now let's count the distance from $(0, 0)$ to the given point on the $y$-axis:
The point is $\greenD1$ unit above the origin.
The coordinates of the point are $(\blueD3, \greenD1)$.
