Example Question #11 : How To Graph An Ordered Pair

Which ordered pair is plotted on the following graph

Coordinate plane 2

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

An ordered pair can be looked at like this:

(x-coordinate, y-coordinate)

where the first number represents the x-coordinate and the second number represent the y-coordinate.  

The x-coordinate is simply the position on the x-axis.  The y-coordinate is the position on the y-axis.

 

If we look at a coordinate plane, we can see where the x- and the y-axes are located.

Blank coordinate plane

The x-axis is horizontal (going left to right) and the y-axis is vertical (going up and down).

Now, when we graph the ordered pair , we locate  on the x-axis.

Coordinate plane  2

In this example, the y-coordinate is . From the current position, we locate  on the y-axis.  

Coordinate plane  2 4

This is where we plot the point
