What is Quadrant?
The meeting point of the two axes is called the origin.
By convention, quadrants are named in an anticlockwise direction.
Each point is represented by its x-coordinate followed by its y-coordinate.
It is written as (x, y)
So, for a point (6, 3), its x-coordinate is 6 and y-coordinate is 3.
In the first quadrant, both x and y take positive values. In the second quadrant, x is negative and y is positive. In the third quadrant, x and y are negative, and in the fourth quadrant, x is positive and y is negative.
There are also points which do not lie on any of the four quadrants.
For example: (1, 0), (-1, 0), (0, 2) and (0, -5) do not lie on any of the four quadrants. They lie on the x-axis or y-axis.
(1, 0) and (-1, 0) lie on the x-axis.
(0, 2) and (0, -5) lie on the y-axis.
