### Example Question #1 : Graphing

A point at in the standard coordinate plane is shifted right 5 units and down 3 units. What are the new coordinates of the point?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Explanation:

The point shifted to the right 5 units will shift along the x-axis, meaning that you will add 5 to the original x-coordinate, so the new . The point shifted down by three units will shift down the y-axis, meaning that you will subtract three from the original y-coordinate, so the new .

The resultant coordinate is .

### Example Question #121 : Psat Mathematics

Give the coordinates of the point plotted in the above set of coordinate axes.

**Possible Answers:**

None of the other responses is correct.

**Correct answer:**

Explanation:

The point can be reached from the origin by moving 2 units right then 6 units up. This makes the first coordinate 2 and the second coordinate 6.
