In this quiz there are 6 questions about plotting and reading coordinates on a graph.

• 1.

### What is the pair of coordinates for the blue star?

• A.

(4, 5)

• B.

(-4, -5)

• C.

(-4, 5)

• D.

(-5, 4)

C. (-4, 5)
Explanation
The pair of coordinates for the blue star is (-4, 5). This means that the blue star is located at the point (-4, 5) on a coordinate plane. The first number represents the x-coordinate, which is -4, and the second number represents the y-coordinate, which is 5.

### What is the pair of coordinates for the star?

• A.

(4,-1)

• B.

(4, 1)

• C.

(1, 4)

• D.

(-4,-1)

B. (4, 1)
Explanation
The pair of coordinates (4, 1) corresponds to the location of the star. The first number represents the x-coordinate, which tells us the horizontal position of the star on the graph. In this case, the star is located at x = 4. The second number represents the y-coordinate, which tells us the vertical position of the star on the graph. In this case, the star is located at y = 1. Therefore, the correct pair of coordinates for the star is (4, 1).

• 3.

### What are the coordinates for the star?

• A.

(-3, 4)

• B.

(3, -4)

• C.

(-4,-3)

• D.

(-3,-4)

D. (-3,-4)
Explanation
The coordinates (-3,-4) represent the location of the star. The first coordinate, -3, represents the position on the x-axis, indicating that the star is 3 units to the left of the origin. The second coordinate, -4, represents the position on the y-axis, indicating that the star is 4 units below the origin. Therefore, the correct answer is (-3,-4).

Rate this question:

• 4.

### What would the pair of coordinates be if the red smiley face moved down 3 squares, and right 7 squares?

• A.

(-1,-3)

• B.

(1, 3)

• C.

(2, 3)

• D.

(3, 7)

B. (1, 3)
Explanation
The correct answer is (1, 3) because if the red smiley face moves down 3 squares from its starting position, the y-coordinate decreases by 3. If it then moves right 7 squares, the x-coordinate increases by 7. Therefore, the final coordinates would be (1, 3).

Rate this question:

• 5.

### The length of each square represents 1 mile. The black smiley face travels 8 miles north, 5 miles east, and 6 miles south. What would be the pair of coordinates that would show the final destination?

• A.

(2, -4)

• B.

(2, 4)

• C.

(-2,-4)

• D.

(1, -4)

A. (2, -4)
Explanation
The black smiley face starts at the origin (0,0) and travels 8 miles north, which means it moves 8 units up on the y-axis. Then, it travels 5 miles east, which means it moves 5 units to the right on the x-axis. Finally, it travels 6 miles south, which means it moves 6 units down on the y-axis. Therefore, the final destination would be at the coordinates (5,-8). However, none of the given answer choices match this coordinate. Therefore, the correct answer is not available.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### The red smiley face travels 9 miles towards the quadrent the star is in. It then travels 10 miles south and 1 mile west. What is the pair of coordinates for the smiley face's final destination?

• A.

(-4, 2)

• B.

(2, -5)

• C.

(2, -4)

• D.

(-6, 6)

C. (2, -4)
Explanation
The red smiley face starts by traveling 9 miles towards the quadrant the star is in. This means it moves 9 units in the positive x-direction. Then, it travels 10 miles south, meaning it moves 10 units in the negative y-direction. Finally, it moves 1 mile west, which is 1 unit in the negative x-direction.

Combining these movements, we can determine that the final destination of the smiley face is 2 units to the left (negative x) and 4 units down (negative y) from its starting position. Therefore, the correct pair of coordinates for the smiley face's final destination is (2, -4).
