Graph Quadrants and the Method to Read Points

Definition of Graph Quadrants

When we divide a plane using the x-axis and y-axis, they make 4 areas. These 4 areas are known as Quadrants. Let’s learn from an example.

As you can see in the image above, there are 4 areas:

  • Quadrant 1: The value of x-axis and y-axis both are positive.
  • Quadrant 2: The value of x-axis is negative but y-axis is positive.
  • Quadrant 3: The value of x-axis and y-axis both.
  • Quadrant 4: The value of x-axis is positive but y-axis is negative.
