the point (−7, −12) lie in the third quadrant. (iii) The x co-ordinate of the point (−23, 4) is negative and its y co-ordinate is positive.

2. ## GIVEN

We are given some points with their abscissa and ordinate

## TO FIND

We need to find the quadrant in which the points lie

## THEORY

We know that there are 4 quadrants in total

(I) Ist Quadrant :- ( +x , +y)

(ii)2nd Quadrant :- ( -x , +y)

(iii)3rd Quadrant :- ( -x, -y )

(iv)4th Quadrant :- ( +x , -y )

## SOLUTION

(I) ( -7, -12 ) :- 3rd Quadrant as both abscissa and ordinate are negative

(ii) (-6 , 0) :- 2nd Quadrant as abscissa is negative and Ordinate is positive

(iii) ( 5, -3) :- 4th Quadrant as abscissa is positive and ordinate is negative

(iv) (0, -3 ) :- 4th Quadrant as abscissa is positive and ordinate is negative
