a. | (7, 7) | ||

b. | (8, 6) | ||

c. | (8, 8) | ||

d. | (8, 7) |

So, the location of the club is given by the ordered pair (8, 7).

Correct answer : (4)

122.

Identify the ordered pair on which the square is located.

a. | (4, 5) | ||

b. | (1, 5) | ||

c. | (5, 5) | ||

d. | (4, 4) |

So, the location of the square is given by the ordered pair (4, 5).

Correct answer : (1)

123.

Identify the ordered pair on which the diamond is located.

a. | (9, 1) | ||

b. | (9, 9) | ||

c. | (9, 10) | ||

d. | (1, 10) |

So, the ordered pair (9, 10) gives the location of the diamond.

Correct answer : (3)

124.

a. | (2, 3) | ||

b. | (3, 3) | ||

c. | (3, 2) | ||

d. | (2, 2) |

So, the ordered pair (2, 3) gives the location of the rectangle.

Correct answer : (1)

125.

a. | (5, 7) | ||

b. | (9, 8) | ||

c. | (1, 1) | ||

d. | (4, 3) |

So, the ordered pair (1, 1) gives the location of the spade.

126.

On which of the ordered pairs is the coffee cup located?

a. | (2, 3) | ||

b. | (2, 2) | ||

c. | (3, 2) | ||

d. | (3, 4) |

So, the coordinates of the point on which the cup is placed are (2, 3).

Correct answer : (1)

127.

What is the distance between the basketball and the soccerball?

a. | 4 units | ||

b. | 5 units | ||

c. | 3 units | ||

d. | 2 units |

The length of a horizontal line segment on a coordinate plane equals the difference between the x-coordinates.

The point on which the basketball is located is (1, 3) and that on which the soccerball is located is (4, 3).

So, the distance between the basketball and the soccerball = 4 - 1 = 3.

[Difference between the x-coordinates.]

So, the distance between the basketball and the soccerball is 3 units.

Correct answer : (3)

128.

Find the distance between the points (4, 2) and (4, 6) .

a. | 7 units | ||

b. | 6 units | ||

c. | 4 units | ||

d. | 5 units |

The length of a vertical line segment on a coordinate plane equals the difference between the

The points have same

So, the distance between the two points = 6 - 2 = 4.

[Difference between the

The distance between the points (4, 2) and (4, 6) is 4 units.

Correct answer : (3)

129.

Plot the points (3, 1) , (6, 2) , and (2, 5) and join them. What do you notice?

a. | a square is formed | ||

b. | a trapezoid is formed | ||

c. | a rectangle is formed | ||

d. | a triangle is formed |

Plotting the points on a coordinate plane. The ordered pair (3, 1) is 3 spaces right and 1 space up of zero the ordered pair (6, 2) is 6 spaces right and 2 spaces up of zero and the ordered pair (2, 5) is 2 spaces right and 5 spaces up of zero, which is the starting point.

Joining the ordered pairs.

So, by joining the set of points a triangle is formed.

Correct answer : (4)

130.

What are the vertices of the triangle in the coordinate plane?

a. | X = (2, 5), Y = (6, 2) and Z = (3, 1) | ||

b. | X = (2, 5), Y = (5, 2) and Z = (3, 1) | ||

c. | X, Y and Z | ||

d. | X = (5, 1), Y = (2, 6) and Z = (1, 3) |

The point Y is 6 spaces right and 2 spaces up of zero, which is the starting point.

The point Z is 3 spaces right and 1 space up of zero, which is the starting point.

Correct answer : (1)
