Start at 𝐡. Go right seven, then go up two. What is the ordered pair representing where you now are?

From 𝐡, we need to move to the right seven. Once we’ve done that, we have to go up two. This is where we are now, but what is the ordered pair that represents our position? Ordered pairs list π‘₯ and then 𝑦. First, start π‘₯-position, then our 𝑦-position. On the π‘₯-axis, we’re currently at a position of seven. Our 𝑦-position is at two. This means that the order pair representing where we are is seven, two.
