# What quadrants are negative x axis coordinates in?

Quadrants 2 and 3 have negative X values.

### What are quadrants of a graph?

Divide the graph into 4 parts and each part is a quadrant. Traditionally, we use the x and y axis to divide it. The portion of the graph with positive x and y coordinates is the first quadrant, The second has positive y values and negative x values, while the third quadrant has both negative x and negative y values. The last is the fourth quadrants which is below the first quadrant. It has positive…

### How many quadrants x-axis and y-axis divide the coordinate plane into?

There are four quadrants (hence the name "quad"). Draw a crossing vertical line (Y axis) and horizontal line (X axis). The areas to the "top right", "bottom right", "bottom left" and "top left" are the four quadrants. Which quadrant any given co-ordinate lies in depends upon the sign of the X & Y values. eg (+X,+Y) (+X,-Y) (-X,-Y) or (-X,+Y) respectively.

### What is a quadtrant?

A vertical line passing through 0, commonly called the y-axis, and a horizontal line passingg through 0, commonly called the x-axis, divide the plane into 4 quadrants. Moving counter-clockwise from the positive x-axis, in the 1st quadrant x and y are both positive, in the 2nd quadrant x is negative and y is positive, in the third quadrant both x and y are negative and in the fourth quadrant x is positive and y is…

### How can you find the coordinates of a point on the coordinates plane?

Points on a coordinate graph are always written (x,y). The X value is equivalent to the location of the point along the horizontal X-axis. This number comes first. If the point is to the right of the main vertical line, its positive; if its to the left, its negative. The Y value equals the location of the point on the Y-axis. If the point is above the main horizontal line, its positive; below this line…

### What is earth's coordinates?

According to Star Trek, Earth is located in the Alpha Quadrant (50000;74000). This is based off the Cartesian planar coordinate system with the upper left corner (0;0) and the lower right corner (100000;100000). The zero-point of the system is located in the center of the Galaxy, and the 4 quadrants correspond to the 4 Galactic quadrants (Alpha=III, Beta=IV, Gamma=II, Delta=I). Consequently, the system has the advantage that the Galactic quadrant can be easily determined by…

### What is a region in math?

In a Cartesian coordinate system, the plane is divided into four quarters, or regions, by two axis which are vertical to each other. These axis are better known as the X and Y axis. The regions are designated I, II, III, IV starting from the positive, positive region (both values of X and Y are positive) - region I, clockwise. Region II is the region where coordinates are below the X-axis (negative) and right of…
