The graphic above is a close up of quadrant I of a coordinate plane. What is the horizontal (back and forth) axis called?

The graphic above is a close up of quadrant 1 of a coordinate plane. What is the vertical (up and down) axis called?

If you were naming the coordinates of a point in this quadrant, which number would you put first, the x-coordinate or the y-coordinate?

## Use the coordinate plane below to answer the questions that follow

**Choose the correct coordinates for each point given:**

**What are the coordinates of point W?**

**What are the coordinates of point X?**

**What are the coordinates of point Y?**

**What are the coordinates of point Z?**

What ordered pair does the origin represent?
