# 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.
