Learn all four quadrants of a coordinate system.
The plane of the graph paper is divided into four regions by the coordinate axes and the four regions are called quadrants.
What are the Quadrants in the Coordinate Plane?
● The region XOY is called the I quadrant.
In first quadrant, both x and y coordinate are positive.
● The region X’OY’ is called the II quadrant.
In second quadrant x coordinate is negative and y coordinate is positive.
● The region X’OY’ is called the III quadrant.
In third quadrant both x and y coordinate are negative.
● The region XOY’ is called the IV quadrant.
In fourth quadrant x coordinate is positive and y coordinate is negative.
According to the quadrants the signs of the coordinate of a point are of the form:
(+, +) in the first quadrant
(, +) in the second quadrant
(, ) in the third quadrant
(+, ) in the fourth quadrant
The table will help us to remember the region of the quadrants and theirs signs of coordinates.
