Exercises 1 To identify the (x,y) ordered pair to which a given point corresponds, count horizontally from the point to the y-axis to find the x-coordinate. Similarly, count vertically from the point to the x-axis to find the y-coordinate.In this case, we have identified that the point G lies at the coordinate pair (-5,-2).
Exercises 2 To identify the (x,y) ordered pair to which a given point corresponds, count horizontally from the point to the y-axis to find the x-coordinate. Similarly, count vertically from the point to the x-axis to find the y-coordinate.In this case, we have identified that the point D lies at the coordinate pair (2,0).
Exercises 3 Quadrant I is the region that contains points having both positive x- and y-coordinates. Only point C(3,5) lies within this region.Since 0 is neither positive nor negative, points B(0,4) and D(2,0) are not in any quadrant, they lie on the axes.
Exercises 4 Quadrant IV is the region that contains points with positive x-coordinates and negative y-coordinates. Only point E(3,-3) lies within this region.Since 0 is neither positive nor negative, point D(2,0) is not in any quadrant because it lies on the axis.

Exercises 11 Let's check each quadrant one by one.Quadrant I In Quadrant I, both x and y are positive numbers. Let's choose (2,2) as our point. Then we multiply both coordinates by a negative number, let's use -1. This reverses the point's signs so we get (-2,-2). Let's plot these points.Quadrant II In Quadrant II, x is negative and y is positive. Let's choose (-1,1) as our point. Then we multiply both coordinates by a negative number, let's use -1. This reverses the point's signs so we get (1,-1). Let's plot these points.Quadrant III In Quadrant III, both x and y are negative numbers. Let's choose (-3,-3) as our point. Then we multiply both coordinates by a negative number, let's use -1. This reverses the point's signs so we get (3,3). Let's plot these points.Quadrant IV In Quadrant IV, x is positive and y is negative. Let's choose (4,-4) as our point. Then we multiply both coordinates by a negative number, let's use -1. This gives the point (-4,4). Let's plot these points.Conclusion In each case, multiplying the point by a negative number carries the point diagonally across the origin to the new point. This is called a reflection about the origin.
