## What is the coordinate plane?

A coordinate plane is a two-dimensional plane formed by the intersection of a vertical line called the y-axis and a horizontal line called the x-axis. These are perpendicular lines that intersect each other at zero, and this point is called the origin….Coordinate Plane.

## What is a coordinate plane and how is it used?

The coordinate plane can be used to plot points and graph lines. This system allows us to describe algebraic relationships in a visual sense, and also helps us create and interpret algebraic concepts.

**How do you read a coordinate plane?**

The order in which you write x- and y-coordinates in an ordered pair is very important. The x-coordinate always comes first, followed by the y-coordinate. As you can see in the coordinate grid below, the ordered pairs (3,4) and (4,3) are two different points!

**How do you use coordinate plane in a sentence?**

coordinate plane in a sentence

- The volume equation on a Cartesian coordinate plane exists within the first quadrant.
- The projection set area is then squared for each coordinate plane.
- Projections of the set are shown in green on the coordinate plane subspaces.

### How do coordinate planes work?

A coordinate plane is a two-dimensional plane formed by the intersection of a vertical line called y-axis and a horizontal line called x-axis. These are perpendicular lines that intersect each other at zero, and this point is called the origin. The given plane has four equal divisions by origin called quadrants.

### How do you create a coordinate plane?

To create a coordinate plane, start with a sheet of graph or grid paper. Next, draw a horizontal line. This line is called the x-axis and is used to locate values of x. To show that the axis actually goes on forever in both directions, use small arrowheads at each end of the line.

**What are the four parts of a coordinate plane called?**

The coordinate plane is divided into four parts: the first quadrant (quadrant I), the second quadrant (quadrant II), the third quadrant (quadrant III) and the fourth quadrant (quadrant IV). The position of the four quadrants can be found on the figure on the right.

**What is an example of a coordinate plane?**

The Cartesian coordinate system in the plane. The prototypical example of a coordinate system is the Cartesian coordinate system. In the plane, two perpendicular lines are chosen and the coordinates of a point are taken to be the signed distances to the lines.

## What is used to locate a point on the coordinate plane called?

A pair of numbers used to locate a point on a coordinate plane is called an ordered pair. An ordered pair is written in the form (x, y) where x is the x-coordinate and y is the y-coordinate.
