Test student's ability to determine the co-ordinates of points plotted on Cartesian axes.

• 1.

### What is the name of the horizontal axis?

• A.

Y

• B.

Flat

• C.

X

• D.

Long

• E.

H

C. X
Explanation
The correct answer is "x". In mathematics and geometry, the horizontal axis is commonly represented by the letter "x". It is used to denote the position or value on a graph or coordinate system along the horizontal direction. The vertical axis is represented by the letter "y" and is perpendicular to the horizontal axis. Therefore, "x" is the appropriate name for the horizontal axis.

### What is the name of the vertical axis?

• A.

X

• B.

V

• C.

Upright

• D.

Long

• E.

Y

E. Y
Explanation
The name of the vertical axis is y.

### What is the correct way to write a pair of co-ordinates?

• A.

(y, x)

• B.

(x, y)

B. (x, y)
Explanation
The correct way to write a pair of coordinates is (x, y). In coordinate systems, the x-coordinate represents the horizontal position and the y-coordinate represents the vertical position. Therefore, it is customary to write the x-coordinate first, followed by the y-coordinate.

### What are the co-ordinates for point A

• A.

(6, 4)

• B.

(4, 6)

• C.

(4, 4)

• D.

(4, -6)

• E.

(6, 6)

B. (4, 6)
Explanation
The coordinates for point A are (4, 6).

Rate this question:

• 5.

### What are the co-ordinates for point A?

• A.

(-4, -3)

• B.

(3, -4)

• C.

(-3, 4)

• D.

(-3, -4)

• E.

(-4, 3)

E. (-4, 3)
Explanation
The correct answer is (-4, 3). This is because the coordinates (-4, 3) match the given coordinates for point A. The x-coordinate is -4 and the y-coordinate is 3.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### What are the co-ordinates for the point A?

• A.

(-7, 0)

• B.

(0, -7)

• C.

(0, 7)

• D.

(7, 0)

• E.

(-0, -0)

B. (0, -7)
Explanation
The co-ordinates for the point A are (0, -7). This can be determined by looking at the given options and identifying the one that matches the given co-ordinates. The x-coordinate is 0 and the y-coordinate is -7, which is represented by the option (0, -7).

Rate this question:

• 7.

### WHat are the co-ordinates of the point marked A?

• A.

(-3, 0)

• B.

(0, 3)

• C.

(0, -3)

• D.

(0, 0)

• E.

(3, 0)

A. (-3, 0)
Explanation
The correct answer is (-3, 0) because the point A is marked at the coordinates (-3, 0) on the coordinate plane. This means that the x-coordinate is -3 and the y-coordinate is 0.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### What are the co-ordinates for point A?

• A.

(5, 2)

• B.

(2, -5)

• C.

(2, 5)

• D.

(5, -2)

• E.

(-5, -2)

D. (5, -2)
Explanation
The correct answer is (5, -2) because it is the only option that matches the given coordinates. The x-coordinate is 5, which corresponds to the first number in the ordered pair, and the y-coordinate is -2, which corresponds to the second number. None of the other options have the same combination of x and y coordinates.

### What are the co-ordinates of point A?

• A.

(0, 6)

• B.

(6, 0)

• C.

(-6, 0)

• D.

(0, 0)

• E.

(0, -6)

E. (0, -6)
Explanation
The correct answer is (0, -6). This is because the coordinates represent the position of a point in a Cartesian coordinate system. In this system, the x-coordinate represents the horizontal position of the point, and the y-coordinate represents the vertical position. Therefore, the point A has an x-coordinate of 0, indicating that it is located on the y-axis. The y-coordinate is -6, indicating that it is 6 units below the origin.

### What are the co-ordinates for point A?

• A.

(0, 0)

• B.

(0, 1)

• C.

(1, 0)

• D.

0, -1)

• E.

(-1, 0)

C. (1, 0)
Explanation
The correct answer is (1, 0) because the given coordinates represent the x and y values of a point on a coordinate plane. In this case, the x-coordinate is 1 and the y-coordinate is 0, indicating that point A is located one unit to the right of the origin (0, 0) on the x-axis.

### What are the co-ordinates for point A?

• A.

(3, -8)

• B.

(3, 8)

• C.

(-3, -8)

• D.

(-3, 8)

• E.

(-8, -3)

C. (-3, -8)
Explanation
The correct answer is (-3, -8) because the coordinates represent the position of point A on a coordinate plane. The first number in the pair represents the x-coordinate, which is the horizontal position of the point, and the second number represents the y-coordinate, which is the vertical position of the point. In this case, the x-coordinate is -3, indicating that the point is 3 units to the left of the origin, and the y-coordinate is -8, indicating that the point is 8 units below the origin.
