What quadrants are x>0, x<0, y>0, & y<0 in on a graph?

• Math -

When something is in quadrant 1, x and y are both positive. Example: (5,3). When something is in quadrant 2, x is negative and y is positive. Example: (-2,4). When something is in quadrant 3, x is negative and y is negative. Example: (-4,-6). When something is in quadrant 4, x is positive and y is negative. Example: (4, -8). The quadrants start at the top right and move counterclockwise in the order 1, 2, 3, 4. This should be more than enough information to fully understand quadrants and answer your questions. Good luck!
