# What is a Cartesian plate?

a Cartesian Plate is the graph system you use in elementary school. it has 4 quadrants I, II, III, IV. going counter clockwise starting at the top right corner. when you do graphing in school like bar graphs, your using quadrant I. the origin is the center point, (0,0). and you have to label the x and y axis. in highschool its used mostly for system of equations and triangles etc.

hope this helps

### What is the term used to refer the four regions of the Cartesian plane?

The four region are called quadrant -the first quadrant is the upper right side of the cartesian plane. -the second quadrant is the upper left side of the cartesian plane. -the third quadrant is the lower left side of the cartesian plane. -the fourth quadrant is the lower right side of the cartesian plane.

### What is another word for Cartesian?

That is a weird question, given that Cartesian has such a specialized meaning, which is, relating to the French mathematician Rene Descartes. If you are talking about the Cartesian coordinate system, which is the familiar graph based on an x and y axis, you could call it an x and y graph, I suppose. That is not exactly the same as Cartesian but it would apply to that particular context.

### A cartestian plane is used to designate?

The name Cartesian is derived from the name Descartes, after its creator, Rene Descartes. In math, a Cartesian plane is the entire field of a graph. The horizontal number line is called the x-axis, and the vertical line is called the y-axis. You will only have a Cartesian plane if these two intersect. If it is a straight line graph, it is not a Cartesian plane.
