# Plotting Points in All Quadrants

## Plotting Points in All Quadrants - How it Works - Video

### Example 1 Example 1:

When plotting points, we should remember that we walk before we fly. So we always use the x-axis (the walk part) first then the y-axis (the fly part) second. So for the point (3, 4) we walk 3 spaces to the right because the number, 3, is positive then we fly 4 spaces up because the number, 4, is positive.

### Example 2 Example 2:

When plotting points, we should remember that we walk before we fly. So we always use the x-axis (the walk part) first then the y-axis (the fly part) second. So for the point (2, -5) we walk 2 spaces to the right because the number, 2, is positive then we fly 5 spaces down because the number, -5, is negative.

### Example 3 Example 3:

When plotting points, we should remember that we walk before we fly. So we always use the x-axis (the walk part) first then the y-axis (the fly part) second. So for the point (0, -4) we don't walk anywhere because of the 0 then we fly 4 spaces down because the number, -4, is negative.

### Example 4 Example 4:

When plotting points, we should remember that we walk before we fly. So we always use the x-axis (the walk part) first then the y-axis (the fly part) second. So for the point (-4, -3) we walk 4 spaces to the left because the number, 2, is positive then we fly 5 spaces down because the number, -5, is negative.

### Example 5 Example 5:

When plotting points, we should remember that we walk before we fly. So we always use the x-axis (the walk part) first then the y-axis (the fly part) second. So for the point (-4, 0) we walk 4 spaces to the left because the number, -4, is negative then we don't fly anywhere because the number is 0.

### Example 6 Example 6:

When plotting points, we should remember that we walk before we fly. So we always use the x-axis (the walk part) first then the y-axis (the fly part) second. So for the point (-3, 2) we walk 3 spaces to the left because the number, -3, is negative then we fly 2 spaces up because the number, 2, is positive.
