# What is the XY grid?

## What is the XY grid?

The relationships are shown on a coordinate grid. A coordinate grid has two perpendicular lines, or axes (pronounced AX-eez), labeled just like number lines. The horizontal axis is usually called the x-axis. The vertical axis is usually called the y-axis.

Is a coordinate plane a grid?

The coordinate plane is a grid that is used to locate points by using numbers. A coordinate plane is a pair of perpendicular number lines or axes. One axis is the horizontal axis, or x-axis.

### What is coordinate algebra?

Coordinate Algebra is a state-designed mathematics course that develops students’ mathematical understanding of algebraic concepts alongside statistics applications and includes coordinate geometry to bridge into more in-depth geometrical topics in other successive high school math courses.

What is a coordinate plane example?

For people to use coordinate planes, they need to have a common language. By convention, we normally call the horizontal number line the x-axis, and we normally call the vertical number line the y-axis. For example, this point would be named (6, 2) since 6 is its x-coordinate and 2 is its y-coordinate.

#### How do you make a coordinate plane?

To create a coordinate plane, we follow these steps: Draw two number lines perpendicular to one another, intersecting at the point 0 on both lines. Label the horizontal number line as the x-axis and label the vertical number line as the y-axis.

What are the 4 quadrants of a coordinate plane?

The four sections of the coordinate plane are quadrants. The four quadrants are labeled counterclockwise using Roman numerals, starting in the upper right section of the graph. Quadrant I is the first quadrant. It is located on the upper right side of the plane.

## How do I find the distance on a coordinate plane?

Step 1 : Find the distance between point A and the x-axis. The y-coordinate of A is 3, so point A is |3| = 3 units from the x-axis. Step 2 : Find the distance between point B and the x-axis.

How do you plot points in the coordinate plane?

Rules to plot a point in the coordinate plane given its ordered pair We move along the x axis that many units from the origin left/right as the x coordinates. Then we move up/down vertically as many units as the y coordinate to locate the point in the coordinate plane.
