Definition:

A coordinate plane is formed by the intersection of a vertical number line called y-axis and a horizontal number line called x-axis. These are two perpendicular lines that intersect each other at the origin, whose coordinates are (0,0).  

Summary:

CARTESIAN COORDINATE PLANE

  • It is named after the French mathematician Rene Descartes.
  • It is defined by two perpendicular number lines: the x-axis, which is horizontal, and the y-axis, which is vertical. 
  • Through these axes, we can describe or locate any point in the plane using an ordered pair of numbers.

PARTS OF COORDINATE PLANE

  • X – axis is the horizontal number line of the cartesian/coordinate plane. It contains the x-values of the coordinates. 
  • Y – axis is the vertical number line of the cartesian/coordinate plane. It contains the y-values of the coordinates. 
  • Origin is the intersection of the two number lines. Its coordinates are (0, 0).
  • Points are plotted on the cartesian plane. It has coordinates. 
  • Coordinates tell the location of a point in the plane. It is given by a pair of numbers enclosed in parentheses: (x ,y). The first number x  gives the point’s horizontal position and the second number y gives its vertical position.
