If the signs of the Cartesian coordinates are:
(+, +) => first quadrant
(-, +) => second quadrant
(-, -) => third quadrant
(+, -) => fourth quadrant.
If one of the coordinates is 0 then the point is on an axis and NOT in a quadrant. If both coordinates are 0 then the point is at the origin.
If the location of the point is given in polar coordinates, then you only need the angle. Suppose the principal angle is Î¦, then
0 < Î¦ < 90 degrees => first quadrant
90 < Î¦ < 180 => second quadrant
180 < Î¦ < 270 => third quadrant
270 < Î¦ < 360 => fourth quadrant.
Again, if the angle is 90, 180 etc degrees, the point is on an axis. If the magnitude is 0 then the point is at the origin.
Depending how you read the graph it could be the 2nd quadrant anti-clockwise
Quadrant I ( + , + ) Quadrant II ( - , + ) Quadrant III ( - , - ) Quadrant IV ( + , - )
A graph with x and y coordinates has 4 quadrants, so would be a 4 quadrant graph.
The quadrant in the lower righthand corner.
On an XY graph, the X axis and Y axis create four separate areas. Each one is a quadrant.
A graph is divided into 4 sections by one vertical line and one horizontal line. Each of the resultant sections is called a quadrant.
Usually the first quadrant.
It does not necessarily fall.
