CASE STUDY-1

Using Cartesian Coordinates we mark a point on a graph by how far along and how far up it is.

The left-right (horizontal) direction is commonly called X-axis.

The up-down (vertical) direction is commonly called Y-axis.

When we include negative values, the x and y axes divide the space up into 4 pieces.

Read the information given above and below and answer the questions that follow:
