Find the coordinates of point B on the scatter plot.


a.
(5, 3)
b.
(3, 5)
c.
(7, 8)
d.
(8, 7)


Solution:

The point B is 8 units to the right from the vertical axis.

So, the x-coordinate of the point B is 8.

The point B is 7 units up from the horizontal axis.

So, the y-coordinate of the point B is 7.

So, the coordinates of the point B are (8, 7).


Correct answer : (4)
 2.  
Identify the quadrants in which the points (- 9, 8) and (3, - 9) are located.
a.
second and fourth quadrants
b.
first and fourth quadrants
c.
first and second quadrants
d.
second and third quadrants


Solution:

Start at the origin.

Move 9 units to the left from the y-axis.

Then move 8 units above the x-axis.

The point (- 9, 8) is in the second quadrant.

Move 3 units to the right from the origin on the x-axis.

Then move 9 units below the x-axis.

The point (3, - 9) is in the fourth quadrant.

The points (- 9, 8) and (3, - 9) are in the second and fourth quadrants.


Correct answer : (1)
 3.  
Name the point in the graph with the coordinates (3, 4).

a.
X
b.
I
c.
W
d.
C


Solution:

Start at the origin.

Move 3 units to the right from the y-axis.
[The x-coordinate is 3.]

Then move 4 units above the x-axis.
[The y-coordinate is 4.]

So, the point with the coordinates (3, 4) is I.


Correct answer : (2)
 4.  
How far is the point (- 5, 3) from y-axis?
a.
- 5 units
b.
5 units
c.
6 units
d.
7 units


Solution:

The x-coordinate of a point gives the distance of the point from the y-axis and the y-coordinate gives the distance of the point from the x-axis.

So, the point (- 5, 3) is at a distance of 5 units from the y-axis.
[Since distance is always positive, take the absolute value.]

 5.  
Write the coordinates of point F from the graph.


a.
(-4, 5)
b.
(4, 5)
c.
(4, -5)
d.
(-4, -5)


Solution:

Start at the origin.

The point F is 4 units to the right from the y-axis.

So, the x-coordinate of point F is 4.

Point F is 5 units below the x-axis.

So, the y-coordinate of point F is -5.

The coordinates of the point F are (4, -5).


Correct answer : (3)
 6.  
In which quadrant does the point (2, 1) lie?
a.
fourth quadrant
b.
third quadrant
c.
second quadrant
d.
first quadrant


Solution:

Both x and y coordinates of the point (2, 1) are positive.

Both the x and y coordinates of a point are positive in only the first quadrant.

So, the point (2, 1) lies in the first quadrant.


Correct answer : (4)
 7.  
In which quadrant does the point (- 3, 5) lie?
a.
quadrant II
b.
quadrant I
c.
quadrant III
d.
quadrant IV


Solution:

All the points in the second quadrant have negative x-coordinate and positive y-coordinate.

So, the point (- 3, 5) lies in the quadrant II.


Correct answer : (1)
 8.  
Where does the point (3, 0) lie?
a.
y-axis
b.
quadrant II
c.
x-axis
d.
quadrant III


Solution:

Start at the origin.

Move 3 units to the right on the x-axis.
[Since the x-coordinate is 3.]

The point (3, 0) is on the x-axis.


Correct answer : (3)
 9.  
Write the coordinates of the point E in the graph.


a.
(-2, 3)
b.
(-2, -3)
c.
(2, -3)
d.
(2, 3)


Solution:

The point E is located 2 units to the right and 3 units up from the origin.

So, the coordinates of the point E are (2, 3).


Correct answer : (4)
 10.  
Graph a point whose second coordinate is 2.

a.
Graph 1
b.
Graph 2
c.
Graph 3
d.
Graph 4


Solution:

Second coordinate means y-coordinate of a point.

The line y = 2 is parallel to x - axis.

All the points on the line y = 2 have y-coordinate as 2.

So, Graph 2 shows a set of points whose second coordinate is 2.
