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

## Example Questions

### Example Question #42 : Graphing

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

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 left  we can subtract  from our coordinate point.

### Example Question #181 : Geometry

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

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 left  we can subtract  from our coordinate point.

### Example Question #44 : Graphing

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

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 left  we can subtract  from our coordinate point.

### Example Question #45 : Graphing

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

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 down , we can subtract  from our  coordinate point and because we are moving to the left  we can subtract  from our coordinate point.

### Example Question #11 : 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 down  and to the left , what is your new point?

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 down , we can subtract  from our  coordinate point and because we are moving to the left  we can subtract  from our coordinate point.

### Example Question #59 : Graphing

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

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 down , we can subtract  from our  coordinate point and because we are moving to the left  we can subtract  from our coordinate point.

### Example Question #51 : Graphing

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

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 down , we can subtract  from our  coordinate point and because we are moving to the right  we can add  to our coordinate point.

### Example Question #52 : Graphing

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

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 down , we can subtract  from our  coordinate point and because we are moving to the right  we can add  to our coordinate point.

### Example Question #53 : Graphing

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

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 down , we can subtract  from our  coordinate point and because we are moving to the right  we can add  to our coordinate point.

### Example Question #58 : Graphing

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