in this when we're gonna begin by plotting the point Negative three negative one. And then we're going to discover which quadrant that point lies. Ines, let's start by plotting our point. Remember, on a coordinate graph, we have our X axes, which moves left and right and R y axis, which moves up and down. And this one we're always going to start with our X coordinate, which is negative. Three. So that means we're going to go either left or right that many units because it's negative from the origin. We're gonna move over three to the left. 123 Then we will look at my why, and it is a negative one because it's negative. We're going to drop down one unit. So right here is our point. Negative three. Negative one. Now let's look at our quadrants. We always begin in this upper right hand quadrant, which is quadrant one, and we move counterclockwise. So we have quadrant, one quadrant, two quadrant, three and quadrant four. So for this point, Nava three negative one. Our quadrant is quadrant three
