## Study Notes

### Cartesian Coordinate System

• The system can be represented by real numbers geometrically by points on a real number line or coordinate line.

### Expansion to a Plane

• The Cartesian coordinate system extends to a plane (two-dimensional space) by adding a vertical axis.

### Axes and Origin

• The horizontal line is called the x-axis, and the vertical line is called the y-axis.
• The point where these two lines intersect is called the origin.

• On the x-axis, positive numbers are to the right, and negative numbers are to the left of the origin.
• On the y-axis, positive numbers are above and negative numbers are below the origin.
• The axes divide the plane into four quadrants.
• The quadrants do not include the axes themselves.

### Points in the Cartesian Plane

• There is an infinite number of points in the Cartesian Plane.
• A point on the x or y axis is not in a quadrant.
• A point in the plane can now be represented uniquely by an ordered pair of numbers (x, y).
