## FAQs on Basics Coordinate Plane Video Lecture - Mathematics for SAT

 1. What is the coordinate plane?
Ans. The coordinate plane is a two-dimensional plane formed by a horizontal x-axis and a vertical y-axis that intersect at the point (0,0), called the origin.
 2. How do you plot points on the coordinate plane?
Ans. To plot a point on the coordinate plane, you locate the x-coordinate on the x-axis and the y-coordinate on the y-axis, then draw a point where the two values intersect.
 3. What is the significance of the quadrants in the coordinate plane?
Ans. The quadrants in the coordinate plane help determine the location of a point based on its signs (+ or -) of the x and y coordinates. Quadrant I is positive for both x and y, Quadrant II is negative for x but positive for y, Quadrant III is negative for both x and y, and Quadrant IV is positive for x but negative for y.
 4. How do you find the distance between two points on the coordinate plane?
Ans. To find the distance between two points on the coordinate plane, you can use the distance formula: √((x₂ - x₁)² + (y₂ - y₁)²).
 5. Can you determine the slope of a line on the coordinate plane?
Ans. Yes, you can determine the slope of a line on the coordinate plane by calculating the change in y-coordinates divided by the change in x-coordinates, often represented as (y₂ - y₁)/(x₂ - x₁).
