## What is the positive coordinate axes?

The positive x-axis, positive y-axis, and positive z-axis are the sides labeled by x, y and z. The origin is the intersection of all the axes. The branch of each axis on the opposite side of the origin (the unlabeled side) is the negative part.

**Is the y-axis positive or negative?**

A y-axis is the vertical axis on the Cartesian coordinate plane. The y-axis starts at negative infinity and increases to positive infinity. The y-axis is also the starting, or 0 point, for measuring how far a point extends horizontally on a graph.

### What are axes on a coordinate grid?

A coordinate grid has two perpendicular lines, or axes (pronounced AX-eez), labeled just like number lines. The horizontal axis is usually called the x-axis. The vertical axis is usually called the y-axis. The point where the x- and y-axis intersect is called the origin.

**Where is negative y-axis on a graph?**

Negative numbers are to the left of the origin on the x-axis and below the origin on the y-axis.

#### How do you know if coordinates are positive or negative?

Mark off a number line with zero in the center, positive numbers going upwards, and negative numbers going downwards. The point where the x and y axes intersect is called the origin. The origin is located at zero on the x axis and zero on the y axis.

**What is negative y-axis?**

Negative y axis appears when displaying small values, less than 1 using scientific notation. zenc on 10-05-2017 07:26 AM. We deal with results that are small values less than 1. They are not negative numbers. But they are often in the range of 1×10^-2 to 1×10^-12 values.

## How many coordinate axes are there?

There are no standard names for the coordinates in the three axes (however, the terms abscissa, ordinate and applicate are sometimes used). The coordinates are often denoted by the letters X, Y, and Z, or x, y, and z. The axes may then be referred to as the X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis, respectively.

**What side of a graph is positive?**

A way to remember this is to think about the numbers are on the x-axis. Going to the right of the origin are the positive values, and going to the left of the origin are the negative values.

### What is coordinate axes 9?

The plane is divided into four sections by the X and Y axes. The quadrants (one-fourth section) are numbered I, II, III, and IV in anti-clockwise order from OX. The cartesian plane, also known as the coordinate plane or the XY plane, comprises these axes and quadrants. These axes are also known as coordinate axes.

**What are two coordinates axes?**

The horizontal axis in the coordinate plane is called the x−axis. The vertical axis is called the y−axis. The point at which the two axes intersect is called the origin.

#### How do you read positive and negative coordinates?

To plot a point, start at the origin and count along the x axis until you reach the x coordinate, count right for positive numbers, left for negative. Then count up or down the number of the y coordinate (up for positive, down for negative.)

**What quadrants are positive and negative?**

In Quadrant I, both the x– and y-coordinates are positive; in Quadrant II, the x-coordinate is negative, but the y-coordinate is positive; in Quadrant III both are negative; and in Quadrant IV, x is positive but y is negative.

## Which way is positive on a graph?

Note that when a line has a positive slope it goes up left to right. Note that when a line has a negative slope it goes down left to right.

**How do you read coordinate geometry?**

Tips And Tricks on Coordinate Geometry Point Slope Form of equation of a line is (y−y1)=m(x−x1) ( y − y 1 ) = m ( x − x 1 ) . For two parallel lines in the coordinate plane, their slopes are equal. And for two perpendicular lines in the coordinate plane, the product of the slopes is equal to -1.
