Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, the first number in a pair of coordinates is your x, which in this case is negative The second number is your y, which in this case is positive, and when you look at the rules I just sent for each quadrant, this means your coordinates are in...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm assuming this is the first you've ever heard of coordinates. A coordinate pair is two numbers in a set of parentheses, which stand for (x, y) x tells you side to side and y tells you up and down. So if you have this dw:1433784416280:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It means that starting at the center, which is (0,0) your coordinates can tell you where you are. In this case, we have (14,3) which would land us dw:1433784518157:dw Somewhere around here. And because you know what the quadrants are: dw:1433784558719:dw You can tell from that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0On the right side of the vertical line, x will be positive no matter how far up or down you go, and on the left side of the vertical line it will be negative no matter how far up or down. So because x is positive, we are only look at dw:1433785008313:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, y is negative, so, it has to be quadrant IV, because underneath the horizontal line, all the y numbers are going to be negative
