Math 1310 1.1 Points, Regions, Distance and Midpoints 1 Section 1.1 - Points, Regions, Distance and Midpoints A point P in the coordinate plane is located by a unique ordered pair of numbers (a,bThe number a is called the x-coordinate and b is called the y-coordinate Example:Plot the following points: (0, 0), (1, 0), (0, 3), (-2, 3), (0, -1), (4, -3), (-1, -4) ). of P .
Math 1310 1.1 Points, Regions, Distance and Midpoints 2 Regions The set of all points in the coordinate plane with y-coordinate k is the horizontal line y k. The set of all points in the coordinate plane with x-coordinate k is the vertical line x k. Example: Graph : 4 y (same as {( x , y ) : y 4} ) Example: Graph: 4 y
