You start a search for a buried object by marking the center of a filed as (0,0), with coordinates giving distances in yards. Coordinates to the north or east are positive and coordinates to the south or west are negative. You find nothing at (10,6), so you try a likelylooking spot 3 yards to the east and 12 yards to the south of the first spot. What are the coordinates of the second spot?
1.7, 6
2.12, 6***
3.13, 9
4.5, 3

From 10 going 3 units to the right puts you at 7
from 6 moving 12 units down puts you at 6
so ......

So it would be A, right? Thank you. :)
