# For each of the following points, write the quadrant in which it lies

Question:

For each of the following points, write the quadrant in which it lies
(i) (–6, 3)
(ii) (–5, –3)
(iii) (11, 6)
(iv) (1, –4)
(v) (–7, –4)
(vi) (4, –1)
(vii) (–3, 8)
(viii) (3, –8)

Solution:

(i) (–6, 3)
Points of the type (–, +) lie in the II quadrant.
Hence, the point lies (–6, 3) in the II quadrant.

(ii) (–5, –3)
Points of the type (–, –) lie in the III quadrant.
Hence, the point lies (–5, –3) in the III quadrant.

(iii) (11, 6)
Points of the type (+, +) lie in the I quadrant.
Hence, the point lies (11, 6) in the I quadrant.

(iv) (1, –4)
Points of the type (+, –) lie in the IV quadrant.
Hence, the point lies (1, –4) in the IV quadrant.

(v) (–7, –4)
Points of the type (–, –) lie in the III quadrant.
Hence, the point lies (–7, –4) in the III quadrant.

(vi) (4, –1)
Points of the type (+, –) lie in the IV quadrant.
Hence, the point lies (4, –1) in the IV quadrant.

(vii) (–3, 8)
Points of the type (–, +) lie in the II quadrant.
Hence, the point lies (–3, 8) in the II quadrant.

(viii) (3, –8)
Points of the type (+, –) lie in the IV quadrant.
Hence, the point lies (3, –8) in the IV quadrant.
