#### Solutions

Chapter 1, Problem 22RCC

a.

To determine

## Describe the coordinate plane.

Expert Solution

The definition is described.

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Describe the coordinate plane.

Calculation:

The coordinate plane gives a surface on which one can plot points, graph functions and graph equations.

It has two axes which meet at the origin, denoted by xaxis and yaxis .

Hence, the definition is described.

b.

To determine

### How do you locate points in the coordinate plane?

Expert Solution

The points are (x,y) .

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

How do you locate points in the coordinate plane?

Calculation:

Points are described by a system of two numbers. One gives horizontal distance and second tells vertical distance from the origin.

The points are (x,y) .

Hence the points are (x,y) .
