True or false: The Cartesian Coordinate System can only be represented by points on a real number, or coordinate line.

True

True or false: The Cartesian coordinate system extends the concept to a three-dimensional space.

False

True or false: The point where the x-axis and y-axis intersect is called the origin.

True

True or false: Positive numbers on the x-axis are to the left of the origin.

False

True or false: A point on the x or y axis is always in a quadrant.

False

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.

Coordinates and Quadrants

  • 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).
