in this problem, we're going to plot the point to negative one until which quadrant that point lies in. So let's start by plotting. The points are X coordinate is positive too. It's on the X axis. We're gonna move toward positive, too. So we're gonna go to the right to and our Y coordinate is negative one. So we're going to go down one. So our point is to negative one. And remember that our quadrants week start here in quadrant one, and we move counterclockwise. So quadrant, one quadrant, two quadrant three in quadrant four. So the point to negative one lives in quadrant four.
