Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 6 The Rectangular Coordinate System Ordered pair – a sequence of two numbers where the order of the numbers is important Origin – point of intersection of two axes Quadrants – regions created by intersection of two axes Axis – horizontal or vertical number line The location of a point residing in the rectangular coordinate system created by a horizontal ( x -) axis and vertical ( y -) axis can be described by an ordered pair. Each number in the ordered pair is referred to as a coordinate.

Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 7 To graph the point corresponding to a particular ordered pair ( a , b ), you must start at the origin and move a units to the left or right (right if a is positive, left if a is negative), then move b units up or down (up if b is positive, down if b is negative).

Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 8 Note that the order of the coordinates is very important, since (– 4, 2) and (2, – 4) are located in different positions. x-axis y-axis (5, 3) 5 units right 3 units up (0, 5) (-6, 0) (2, -4) (-4, 2) (0, 0) Quadrant I Quadrant IV Quadrant III Quadrant II origin Graphing an Ordered Pair

Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 9 Paired data is data that can be represented as an ordered pair. An order pair is a solution of an equation in two variables if replacing the variables by the appropriate values of the ordered pair results in a true statement. Graphing Paired Data

Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 10 Determine whether (3, 2) is a solution of 2 x + 5 y = 4. Let x = 3 and y = 2 in the equation. 2 x + 5 y = 4 2(3) + 5( 2) = 4 Replace x with 3 and y with –2. 6 + ( 10) = 4 Simplify. 4 = 4 True So (3, 2) is a solution of 2 x + 5 y = 4. Solutions of an Equation Example:
