Example Questions

Example Question #161 : Coordinate Geometry

Which of the following points corresponds to ?

5

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Recall that in a coordinate , the first number corresponds to how to move on the horizontal x-axis, and the second number corresponds to how to move on the veritcal y-axis.

Every time you see a positive number in the x-coordinate, you will move to the right. Every time you see a negative number in the x-coordinate, you will move to the left.

When you see a positive number in the y-coordinate, you will move up. When you see a negative number in the y-coordinate, you will move down.

To get to the point , move  units to the left on the x-axis, then move  units down on the y-axis.

Example Question #1 : Graph And Interpret Points On A Coordinate Plane: Ccss.Math.Content.5.G.A.2

Starting at the coordinate point shown below, if you move up  and to the right , what is your new point?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

The starting point is at . When we move up or down we are moving along the -axis. When we move to the right or left we are moving along the -axis. 

Moving up the -axis and moving right on the -axis means addition. 

Moving down the -axis and moving left on the axis means subtraction. 

Because we are moving up , we can add  to our  coordinate point and because we are moving to the right  we can add  to our coordinate point.
