On a graph paper draw the coordinate axes X’OX and YOY’, and plot each of the following points:

(i) (ii)

(iii) (iv)

(v) (vi)

(vii) (viii)

Let X'OX and YOY' be the coordinate axes.

(i) On the x−axis, take 4 units to the right of the y axis; and then on the y−axis, take 3 units above the x−axis. Thus, we obtain the point A(4,3)

(ii) On the x−axis, take 2 units to the right of the y−axis; and then on the y−axis, take 6 units above the x−axis. Thus, we obtain the point B(2,6)

(iii) On the x−axis, take 3 units to the left of the y−axis; and then on the y−axis, take 5 units above the x−axis. Thus, we obtain the point C(−3,5)

(iv) On the x−axis, take 5 units to the left of the y−axis; and then on the y−axis, take 2 units above the x−axis. Thus, we obtain the point D(−5,2)

(v) On the x−axis, take 2 units to the left of the y−axis; and then on the y−axis, take 3 units below the x−axis. Thus, we obtain the point E(−2,−3)

(vi) On the x−axis, take 5 units to the left of the y−axis; and then on the y−axis, take 3 units below the x−axis. Thus, we obtain the point F(−5,−3)

(vii) On the x−axis, take 5 units to the right of the y−axis; and then on the y−axis, take 4 units below the x−axis. Thus, we obtain the point G(5,−4)

(viii) On the x−axis, take 3 units to the right of the y−axis; and then on the y−axis, take 3 units below the x−axis. Thus, we obtain the point H(3,−3)
