## What are the 5 coordinates?

The figure below shows a coordinate plane that specifies five points: A, B, C, D, and E. The coordiate plane can also be referred to as the Cartesian coordinate plane, as it is used as part of the Cartesian coordinate system.

### What is an XY grid called?

A Cartesian coordinate system (UK: /kɑːˈtiːzjən/, US: /kɑːrˈtiʒən/) in a plane is a coordinate system that specifies each point uniquely by a pair of numerical coordinates, which are the signed distances to the point from two fixed perpendicular oriented lines, measured in the same unit of length.

#### What is a coordinate plane 6th grade?

A coordinate plane is a two-dimensional plane formed by the intersection of a vertical line called y-axis and a horizontal line called x-axis. These are perpendicular lines that intersect each other at zero, and this point is called the origin.

**What is a coordinate grid?**

What is the coordinate grid? Well, the coordinate grid, sometimes referred to as the Cartesian or rectangular coordinate plane, is the intersection of two real number lines, one horizontal and one vertical. It acts as a map and yields precise directions from one place to another.

**How do you read XYZ coordinates?**

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. The x-coordinate specifies the distance to the right (if x is positive) or to the left (if x is negative) of the y-axis.

## What is coordinate grid?

### How does a coordinate grid work?

The numbers on a coordinate grid are used to locate points. Each point can be identified by an ordered pair of numbers; that is, a number on the x-axis called an x-coordinate, and a number on the y-axis called a y-coordinate. Ordered pairs are written in parentheses (x-coordinate, y-coordinate).

#### What are the 4 coordinate planes?

Here are the characteristics for each of the four coordinate plane quadrants:

- Quadrant I: positive x and positive y.
- Quadrant II: negative x and positive y.
- Quadrant III: negative x and negative y.
- Quadrant IV: positive x and negative y.

**What are examples of coordinates?**

A set of values that show an exact position. On graphs it is usually a pair of numbers: the first number shows the distance along, and the second number shows the distance up or down. Example: the point (12,5) is 12 units along, and 5 units up.
