In this video we will learn about the Cartesian System of Geometry in which the coordinate plane is divided by the x and y axis.
A Cartesian system is the one which specifies a point plotted uniquely on a plane by a pair of numerical coordinates, having a pre-defined distance from the two fixed perpendicular coordinates, measured in the same unit of length.
- In the first quadrant both the x and y coordinates are positive
- In the second quadrant x coordinate is negative and the y coordinate is positive
- In the third quadrant both x and y coordinates are negative, and
- In fourth quadrant x coordinate is positive and the y coordinate is negative.
