## anonymous one year ago If a number on a coordinate line was -3,2, that would be on the bottom right, right?

1. Nnesha

(x,y) first number represent x coordinate (horizontal ) 2nd number represent y -coordinate

2. anonymous

-x is to the left, and +y is up. so top left

4. Nnesha

remember the sign chat |dw:1444322778897:dw|

5. anonymous

Thanks. That makes sense now.

6. Nnesha

practice time

7. Nnesha

|dw:1444322914127:dw| draw a dot at ( 4 ,-3 ) :=)

8. anonymous

|dw:1444322975478:dw|

9. anonymous

right where the lines intersect?

10. Nnesha

right

11. Nnesha

|dw:1444322973639:dw|

12. anonymous

So, if the negative is second, it is bottom, if it comes first, it is top?

13. Nnesha

|dw:1444322996459:dw| now what is x and y where red dot is

14. anonymous

-4.-8

15. Nnesha

wait no what would be the x-coordinate

16. anonymous

So it would be swapped?

17. Nnesha

remember the alphabetical order x comes first then y :=)

18. Nnesha

right

20. anonymous

Like that?

21. Nnesha

|dw:1444323179454:dw| red line is x-axis y values above that line are positive so if 2nd number is positive you should draw a point above that red line if 2nd number is negative then below the red line

22. Nnesha

|dw:1444323260548:dw| the blue line is y-axis if first number is negative (x--coordinate ) you should draw a point at left side of the line if first number (x-coordinate )is positive then right side of the blue line

23. anonymous

Oh

24. anonymous

I understand it now. Thanks. That really helped me.

np :=) good luck
