### Example Question #81 : Coordinate Geometry

Which point best represents the coordinate ?

C

D

B

A

D

Explanation:

To get to , move right along the x-axis by , then move up on the y-axis by .

The sign in front of each number represents which direction to go on the x or y-axis starting at the origin . If the number is positive you go right on the x-axis or up on the y-axis. If the sign is negative then you move to the left on the x-axis or down on the y-axis.

### Example Question #1 : Graphing

Which point best represents the coordinates ?

B

A

D

C

A

Explanation:

The sign in front of each number represents which direction to go on the x or y-axis starting at the origin . If the number is positive you go right on the x-axis or up on the y-axis. If the sign is negative then you move to the left on the x-axis or down on the y-axis.

To get to , move left on the x-axis by , then move up on the y-axis by .

### Example Question #1 : How To Graph An Ordered Pair

Which point best represents the coordinate ?

D

A

C

B

D

Explanation:

The sign in front of each number represents which direction to go on the x or y-axis starting at the origin . If the number is positive you go right on the x-axis or up on the y-axis. If the sign is negative then you move to the left on the x-axis or down on the y-axis.

To get to , only move up by  on the y-axis. Do not move along the x-axis because the x-coordinate is .

### Example Question #231 : Algebra

Which point best represents the coordinate ?

D

B

C

A

C

Explanation:

To get to , move right on the x-axis by  then move up on the y-axis by .

The sign in front of each number represents which direction to go on the x or y-axis starting at the origin . If the number is positive you go right on the x-axis or up on the y-axis. If the sign is negative then you move to the left on the x-axis or down on the y-axis.

### Example Question #1 : Graphing

Which point best represents the coordinate ?

C

D

A

B

A

Explanation:

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

The sign in front of each number represents which direction to go on the x or y-axis starting at the origin . If the number is positive you go right on the x-axis or up on the y-axis. If the sign is negative then you move to the left on the x-axis or down on the y-axis.

### Example Question #1 : Graphing

Which point best represents the coordinate ?

C

A

D

B

B

Explanation:

The sign in front of each number represents which direction to go on the x or y-axis starting at the origin . If the number is positive you go right on the x-axis or up on the y-axis. If the sign is negative then you move to the left on the x-axis or down on the y-axis.

To get to , move right on the x-axis by , then move down on the y-axis by .

### Example Question #241 : Coordinate Plane

Which point best represents the coordinate ?

C

B

A

D

B

Explanation:

The sign in front of each number represents which direction to go on the x or y-axis starting at the origin . If the number is positive you go right on the x-axis or up on the y-axis. If the sign is negative then you move to the left on the x-axis or down on the y-axis.

To get to , move right on the x-axis by  then move down on the y-axis by .

### Example Question #11 : How To Graph An Ordered Pair

Which point best represents the coordinate ?

D

C

B

A

D

Explanation:

The sign in front of each number represents which direction to go on the x or y-axis starting at the origin . If the number is positive you go right on the x-axis or up on the y-axis. If the sign is negative then you move to the left on the x-axis or down on the y-axis. The first term in the ordered pair is the movement in the x direction and the second point is the movement in the y direction.

To get to , move left on the x-axis by , then move up on the y-axis by .
