### Which is the first quadrant in a coordinate grid?

The top right one... it is the first because it is where both the x-value and y-values are positive. The second quadrant is the top left. The x-values are negative and the y-values are postive. The third quadrant is the bottom left. The x-values are negative and the y-values are negative. The fourth quadrant is the bottom right. The x-values are positive and the y-values are negative.

### How do you find the quadrant number of a point?

If the points have both positive y-values and x-values it is quadrant 1 If the points have a negative x-value and a positive y-value it is quadrant 2 If the points have both negative y-values and x-values it is quadrant 3 If the points have a positive x-values and a negative y-value it is quadrant 4

### Why is the product of two absolute values is always a positive number?

This is not strictly true, because an absolute value, and hence the product of two absolute values can be zero. It is, therefore true to say that the product of two absolute values is always non-negative. An absolute value of a number is, by definition, non-negative. And by the definition of multiplication, the product of two non-negative numbers in non-negative.
