Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

A set of coordinate axes that extend from negative to positive numbers can be divided into 4 quarters.

 

These are called QUADRANTS and are labelled like this.

 

 

Notice that the 1st quadrant is the one where points have positive x-coordinates and positive y-coordinates, e.g. (3, 4), (6, 1) etc.

Notice also that the quadrants are labelled in an anticlockwise direction from the 1st quadrant round to the 4th quadrant.

 

 

Example

In which quadrant does the point (4, -2) lie?

 

Answer

(4, -2) has a positive x-coordinate and and a negative y-coordinate.

 

It is in the 4th quadrant.

  • Question 1

In which quadrant does the point (4, 2) lie?

CORRECT ANSWER
1st quadrant
EDDIE SAYS
x-coordinate is positive.
y-coordinate is positive. This means the coordinate is in the first quadrant.
  • Question 2

In which quadrant does the point (-4, 2) lie?

CORRECT ANSWER
2nd quadrant
EDDIE SAYS
x-coordinate is negative.
y-coordinate is positive. This means the coordinate is in the second quadrant.
  • Question 3

In which quadrant does the point (4, -4) lie?

CORRECT ANSWER
4th quadrant
EDDIE SAYS
x-coordinate is positive.
y-coordinate is negative. This means the coordinate is in the fourth quadrant.
  • Question 4

In which quadrant does the point (-4, -4) lie?

CORRECT ANSWER
3rd quadrant
EDDIE SAYS
x-coordinate is negative.
y-coordinate is negative. This means the coordinate is in the third quadrant.
  • Question 5

In which quadrant does the point (-2, -3) lie?

CORRECT ANSWER
3rd quadrant
EDDIE SAYS
x-coordinate is negative.
y-coordinate is negative. This means the coordinate is in the third quadrant.
  • Question 6

In which quadrant does the point (-1, 7) lie?

CORRECT ANSWER
2nd quadrant
EDDIE SAYS
x-coordinate is negative.
y-coordinate is positive. This means the coordinate is in the second quadrant.
