1.

Find the coordinates of point B on the scatter plot.

a. | (5, 3) | ||

b. | (3, 5) | ||

c. | (7, 8) | ||

d. | (8, 7) |

So, the

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

So, the

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 |

Move 9 units to the left from the

Then move 8 units above the

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

Move 3 units to the right from the origin on the

Then move 9 units below the

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 |

Move 3 units to the right from the

[The

Then move 4 units above the

[The

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 |

So, the point (- 5, 3) is at a distance of 5 units from the

[Since distance is always positive, take the absolute value.]

Correct answer : (2)

5.

Write the coordinates of point F from the graph.

a. | (-4, 5) | ||

b. | (4, 5) | ||

c. | (4, -5) | ||

d. | (-4, -5) |

The point F is 4 units to the right from the

So, the

Point F is 5 units below the

So, the

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 |

Both the

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 |

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 |

Move 3 units to the right on the

[Since the

The point (3, 0) is on the

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) |

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 |

The line

All the points on the line

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

Correct answer : (2)
