If we defined going to the left to be increasing then the quadrants would have been defined in a **clockwise manner**.

## How are the 4 quadrants numbered?

The intersecting x- and y-axes divide the coordinate plane into four sections. These four sections are called quadrants. Quadrants are named using the **Roman numerals I, II, III, and IV beginning with** the top right quadrant and moving counter clockwise.

## What order do the 4 quadrants go in?

What are the 4 Quadrants? The x and the y axes divide the plane into four graph quadrants. These are formed by the intersection of the x and y axes and are named as: **Quadrant I, II, III, and IV**. In words, we call them first, second, third, and fourth quadrant.

### How many quadrants are in the Cartesian plane?

The coordinate axes divide the plane into **four** regions called quadrants (or sometimes grid quadrants or Cartesian coordinate quadrants).

### Is quadrant 4 positive or negative?

Quadrant III: Both x and y-coordinate are negative. Quadrant IV: **x-coordinate is positive and y-coordinate is negative**.

### What is quadrant 3 on a graph?

Quadrant III: The third quadrant is **in the bottom left corner**. Both x and y have negative values in this quadrant.

### How do you read quadrants?

The first quadrant is the upper right-hand corner of the graph, the section where both x and y are positive. The second quadrant, in the upper left-hand corner, includes negative values of x and positive values of y. The third quadrant, the lower left-hand corner, includes negative values of both x and y.

### What quadrant if point is on axis?

The points that lie on **an axis do not lie in any quadrant**. If a point lies on the x-axis then its y-coordinate is 0. Similarly, for the y-axis.

### What quadrant does the angle lie in?

Angles between 0∘ and 90∘ are in the **first quadrant**. Angles between 90∘ and 180∘ are in the second quadrant. Angles between 180∘ and 270∘ are in the third quadrant. Angles between 270∘ and 360∘ are in the fourth quadrant.

### What are the signs of the coordinates in each quadrant?

Signs of x-axis and y-axis in each quadrant

In the first quadrant, both x and y take positive values. In **the second quadrant, x is negative and y is positive**. In the third quadrant, x and y are negative, and in the fourth quadrant, x is positive and y is negative.

### In which quadrant it lies when the first coordinate is negative and the second coordinate is?

If both x and y are positive, then the point lies in the first quadrant. If x is negative and y is positive, then the point lies in the **second quadrant**. If both x and y are negative, then the point lies in the third quadrant.

### In which quadrants is abscissa of a point positive?

A coordinate is an ordered pair of numbers in which the first number is the abscissa i.e. the measurement along the X axis. So, the abscissa of the point is positive in the **first and fourth quadrant**.

### What are the quadrants of the abdomen?

**Four abdominal quadrants**

- right upper quadrant fossa (RUQ)
- right lower quadrant fossa (RLQ)
- left lower quadrant fossa (LLQ)
- left upper quadrant fossa (LUQ)

### How do you know which quadrant is positive or negative?

In **Quadrant I**, both the x– and y-coordinates are positive; in Quadrant II, the x-coordinate is negative, but the y-coordinate is positive; in Quadrant III both are negative; and in Quadrant IV, x is positive but y is negative.

### What does quadrant mean on a graph?

A quadrant is **the area contained by the x and y axes**; thus, there are four quadrants in a graph. To explain, the two dimensional Cartesian plane is divided by the x and y axes into four quadrants. Starting in the top right corner is Quadrant I and in a counterclockwise direction you will see Quadrants II through IV.

### In which quadrant does a point lies whose both coordinates are negative?

(c) A point both of whose coordinates are negative will lie in **III quadrant** because, in III quadrant x-coordinate and y-coordinate both are negative.

### In which quadrant does the point 1/2 lie?

(iv) The point (1, 2) lies in **I ^{st} Quadrant** in the Cartesian as both x and y are positive.

### In what quadrants is sine negative?

Explanation: Trigonometric functions sine and cosine are both positive in first quadrant but in **third quadrant** both are negative.

### What are quadrants in coordinates?

A quadrant **means 4 parts of something**. So, in a coordinate plane, the 4 “squares” are called quadrants. There are 4 quadrants in a coordinate plane, and they each have different locations and names. The top right quadrant is called, Quadrant 1.

### How many quadrants are there in coordinate geometry?

Learn about the **4 quadrants** that make up a coordinate plane.

### Which is the lower left quadrant on the coordinate plane?

**Quadrant III** is the lower-left area. Quadrant IV is the lower-right area. It is easiest to remember these by starting in the upper-right corner and moving counter-clockwise (the opposite of the way the hands on the clock go).
