### How do you state coordinates on a graph?

To locate (2,5), move 2 units to the right on the x-axis and 5 units up on the y-axis. 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**.### How do you plot points on a graph?

**Follow these simple steps:**

- First, find the value for x on the x-axis.
- Next, find the y-value – in this case, y=1100, so find 1100 on the y-axis.
- Your
**point**should be plotted at the intersection of x=0 and y=1100. - Finally,
**plot the point**on your**graph**at the appropriate spot.

### What are coordinates of a point?

The

**coordinates of a point**are a pair of numbers that define its exact location on a two-dimensional plane. Recall that the**coordinate**plane has two axes at right angles to each other, called the x and y axis. The**coordinates**of a given**point**represent how far along each axis the**point**is located.### How do you plot a 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**.

### What is a point on a graph called?

Number pair – Two numbers that represent a

**point on a graph**, also**called**the coordinates. Ordinate – The vertical line, or y-axis, of a**graph**. Origin – The origin is the**point**where the X and Y axis intersect on a**graph**. This is the**point**(0,0) in a two-dimensional**graph**.### How do you plot 4 coordinates?

### How do you plot three coordinates?

**Plotting Points**in**Three**Dimensions- Locate x on the x-axis.
- From that point, moving parallel to the y-axis, move y units.
- From that point, moving parallel to the z-axis, move z units; this is your point.

### How do you write XYZ coordinates?

The

**Cartesian coordinates**of a point in the plane are written as (x,y). The first number x is called the x-**coordinate**(or x-component), as it is the signed distance from the origin in the direction along the x-axis.### How do you read XYZ coordinates?

### How do you graph XYZ coordinates?

### What direction is XYZ?

**XYZ**Convention

Positive Y-axis is north and positive X-axis is east. Z-axis is always the vertical axis and is positive upwards. Rotation follows the right-hand rule where the thumb is pointing in the positive **direction** along the axis of rotation and the curled fingers indicate the positive rotation **direction**.
