# ISEE Lower Level Quantitative : How to find the points on a coordinate plane

## Example Questions

### Example Question #161 : Coordinate Geometry

Which of the following points corresponds to ?

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 #11 : How To Find The Points On A Coordinate Plane

Which of the following corresponds with the point ?

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 right on the x-axis, then move  units down on the y-axis.

### Example Question #921 : Isee Lower Level (Grades 5 6) Quantitative Reasoning

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 right on the x-axis, then move  units down on the y-axis.

### Example Question #172 : Coordinate Geometry

Which of the following corresponds to the point ?

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 up on the y-axis.

### Example Question #173 : Coordinate Geometry

Which of the following corresponds to the point ?

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 right on the x-axis, then move  units down on the y-axis.

### Example Question #174 : Coordinate Geometry

Which of the following corresponds to the point ?

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  unit to the left on the x-axis, then move  units up on the y-axis.

### Example Question #175 : Coordinate Geometry

Which of the following corresponds to the point ?

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 right on the x-axis, then move  units down on the y-axis.

### Example Question #176 : Coordinate Geometry

Which of the following points corresponds to ?

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.
