To graph, or **plot**, **points** we use two perpendicular lines called the x axis and the y axes. Horizontal number line is the x axis and the vertical line is the y axis. Every **point** in the coordinate **plane** is represented by an ordered pair of x and y coordinates. …

To find out the **coordinates** of a point in the **coordinate system** you do the opposite. Begin at the point and follow a vertical line either up or down to the x-axis. There is your x-**coordinate**. And then do the same but following a horizontal line to find the y-**coordinate**.

## Q. What is a Cartesian plane called?

The two-dimensional **plane** is **called** the **Cartesian plane**, or the **coordinate plane** and the axes are **called** the **coordinate** axes or x-axis and y-axis. The given **plane** has four equal divisions by origin **called** quadrants.

## Q. How do you find the Cartesian coordinates of a point?

Summary. To convert from Polar **Coordinates** (r,θ) to **Cartesian Coordinates** (x,y) : x = r × cos( θ ) y = r × sin( θ )

## Q. How is a point plotted in the plane?

You move **7** units to the right on the x-axis. Then you move **10** units down the y-axis. The **point** will then land on quadrant IV.

## Q. What are the steps in plotting a point?

**Follow these simple steps:**

- First, find the value for x on the x-axis. …
- Next, find the y-value – in this case, y=1100, so find 1100 on the y-axis. …
- Your
**point**should be plotted at the intersection of x=0 and y=1100. … - Finally,
**plot**the**point**on your graph at the appropriate spot.

## Q. How do you do Ordered pairs?

**Ordered pairs** are often used to represent two variables. When we write (x, y) = (7, – 2), we mean x = 7 and y = – 2. The number which corresponds to the value of x is called the x-coordinate and the number which corresponds to the value of y is called the y-coordinate. Example 1.

## Q. How do you find the equation of a point on a graph?

Correct answer: To **determine** if a **point** is on a line you can simply subsitute the x and y coordinates into the **equation**. Another way to solve the problem would be to **graph** the line and **see** if it falls on the line. Plugging in will give which is a true statement, so it is on the line.

## Q. How do you do graphs in math?

**To graph a linear equation, we can use the slope and y-intercept.**

- Locate the y-intercept on the
**graph**and plot the point. - From this point, use the slope to find a second point and plot it.
**Draw**the line that connects the two points.

## Q. How do you find the equation of two points?

Find the **Equation** of a Line Given That You Know **Two Points** it Passes Through. The **equation** of a line is typically written as y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. If you know **two points** that a line passes through, this page will show you how to find the **equation** of the line.

## Q. How do you find the coordinates of a point?

To **find** out the **coordinates of a point** in the **coordinate** system you do the opposite. Begin at the **point** and follow a vertical line either up or down to the x-axis. There is your x-**coordinate**. And then do the same but following a horizontal line to **find** the y-**coordinate**.
