how do you read a coordinate grid? How do you know which one is the y and which one is the x?

    It is just a convention - there is no reason for it - BUT the X is always the horizontal axis, and the Y is the vertical when you right a coordinate the X is always given first|dw:1444322325479:dw|

    x-coordinate is a horizontal shift (how many units point going left or right) y-coordinate is a vertical shift( how many units its going up or down) for signs |dw:1444322317436:dw|

    ^^ correction^^ I of course meant when you write a coordinate (not when you right a coordinate )

    So, if it were -3, 2, that would be on the bottom right or top left?
