    So, 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...?

    I'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|

    It 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

    On 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|

    Now, y is negative, so, it has to be quadrant IV, because underneath the horizontal line, all the y numbers are going to be negative

    I can understand if my explanations are a bit confusing, and I can give you a website to help or start from the beginning to give a better overview

    If I need any help on anything else (in math) is it okay if I just tag you in them?
