A rectangular coordinate plane
is a 2-dimensional graphing system that allows you to specify the exact location of a point, lines, and plane figures.
the x axis, the y axis, and the origin.
The main part of the rectangular coordinate plane are
The x axis
Is horizontal, running straight left and right.
The y axis
Is vertical, or perpendicular to the x axis.
Is the point where the x and y axes meet.
on a plane is located in terms of two numbers
the point's x-axis position and its y-axis position.
A point on a plane is located in terms of two numbers
A pair of numbers that can be used to locate a point on a coordinate plane.
Determine the coordinates for the point on this graph:
Step 1. Determine the x coordinate. It really doesn't matter whether you find the x- or y-coordinate first, as long as you show the final pair as (x, y) — x followed by y.
Using the Rectangular Coordinate Plane
This kind of graph is used for representing the position of points, lines, and plane figures. Points plotted on a
Plotting Lines on the Coordinate Plane
plot the two points and draw a straight line between them.
How to Plot a straight line between points
Step 1: Plot the first point. Step 2: Plot the second point. Step 2: Draw a straight line between the two points.
A horizontal line
is a straight line that lies parallel to the x axis on the coordinate plane. If the coordinate plane is set up in the customary fashion, horizontal lines on the plane run straight left and right.
A vertical line
is a straight line that lies parallel to the y axis on the coordinate plan. If the coordinate plane is set up in the customary fashion, vertical lines on the plane run straight up and down.
The intercepts of a line
are the two special points where the line crosses the x- and y-axes.
the point where the line crosses the x-axis
the point where the line crosses the y-axis
the ordered pair (0,y)
The y-intercept occurs where the line crosses the y-axis, so it is shown as
The x-coordinate is always zero
where the line crosses the x-axis
the ordered pair (x,0)
The x-intercept occurs where the line crosses the x-axis, so it is shown as
The y-coordinate is always zero
where the line crosses the y-axis
Determine the x- and y-intercepts for this line.
Step 1: Find the coordinate where the line crosses the x-axis Step 2: Find the coordinate where the line crosses the y-axis
Finding the Slopes of Lines
Slope = Change in y / Change in x
two points to define a line
Points are important parts of a line. It takes at least
the slope of the line
is like the "slant" or "steepness" of a line on the coordinate plane.
rises from left to right
A line with a positive slope
falls from left to right
A line with a negative slope
is a horizontal line
A line with zero slope
is a vertical line
A line with an infinite (undefined) slope
The slope of a line
is defined as the ratio of the change in the y distance to the corresponding change in the x distance.
Change in y / Change in x
Change in y divided by the change in x
y2 - y1 / x2 - x1
m = y2 - y1 / x2 - x1
The slope of a line is defined as the ratio of the change in the y distance to the corresponding change in the x distance.
rises from left to right (uphill)
A line with a positive slope
rises from right to left (downhill)
A line with a negative slope
m = delta y / delta x
m = y2 - y1 / x2 - x1 is sometimes written as
So the slope of the line is 1.5.
For a certain line plotted on a coordinate plane, the slope increases upward 4 units in the y direction for every 3 in the positive-x direction. What is the slope of the line.
The slope of a line is defined as
the ratio of the change in the y distance to the corresponding change in the x distance.

The upper right quadrant on the cartesian plane
which quadrant is (-4,-3) in?
The lower right quadrant on the cartesian plane

It is a transformation that flips a figure over a line of reflection.
It is a transformation that turns a figure about a fixed point.
It is a transformation that moves points the distance and in the same direction.

In general, a special numerical relationship where the symbol f(x) replaces y and is read as "the value of f at x" or simply as "f of x".
An equation that describes a function.
is a graph used to determine whether there is a relationship between paired data. Scatter plots can show trends in data.
