What are the four steps to making a coordinate graph?

Well a regular x-axis and y-axis graph is done like this...

First make a horizontal line(from left to right) and draw arrows on each side of the line. mark this the x-axis

Second make a vertical line(from top to bottom) that intersects each line in the exact center. mark this the y-axis

Third make marks on each of the lines to indicate how far on your line you want to go out. this is line a number line but in four directions... up-direction... down-direction... left-direction... right-direction

fourth label your coordinates with the amount of units you go over left or right as the x coordinates. label your coordinates with the amount of units you go up and down as the y-coordinates. they are written as (x,y). and yes you can have negative values for both or just one.
