Flashcard 28 - Math Flashcard Set for the SAT Exam

Back

The correct answer is:

Quadrant I—\(x\) is positive and \(y\) is positive.

Quadrant II—\(x\) is negative and \(y\) is positive.

Quadrant III—\(x\) is negative and \(y\) is negative.

Quadrant IV—\(x\) is positive and \(y\) is negative.


Explanation:

Quadrant I: In this quadrant, both the \(x\) and \(y\) coordinates are positive. As you move right along the \(x\)-axis, the values of \(x\) increase, and as you move up along the \(y\)-axis, the values of \(y\) increase.

Quadrant II: In this quadrant, the \(x\) coordinate is negative, while the \(y\) coordinate is positive. As you move left along the \(x\)-axis, the values of \(x\) decrease, and as you move up along the \(y\)-axis, the values of \(y\) increase.

Quadrant III: In this quadrant, both the \(x\) and \(y\) coordinates are negative. As you move left along the \(x\)-axis, the values of \(x\) decrease, and as you move down along the \(y\)-axis, the values of \(y\) decrease.

Quadrant IV: In this quadrant, the \(x\) coordinate is positive, while the \(y\) coordinate is negative. As you move right along the \(x\)-axis, the values of \(x\) increase, and as you move down along the \(y\)-axis, the values of \(y\) decrease.
