  • A ( 0 , 7 )
  • B ( 0 , 2 )
  • C ( 7 , 2 )
  • D ( 2 , 7 )
  • E ( 0 , 0 )

Q3:

Write the ordered pair for the location of the monkeys.

  • B ( 4 , 7 )
  • C ( 4 , 5 )
  • D ( 6 , 4 )
  • E ( 3 , 1 )

Q4:

Which coordinate has NOT been plotted on the coordinate grid?

  • A ( 0 , 0 )
  • B ( 4 , 0 )
  • C ( 0 , 4 )
  • D ( 4 , 4 )
  • E ( 2 , 4 )

Q5:

Are the coordinates (1,3) and (3,1) in the same location on a coordinate grid?

  • Ano
  • Byes

Q6:

Which coordinate has NOT been plotted on the coordinate grid?

Q8:

The figure shows the map of a zoo. Which animals are located at (2,5)?

  • Amonkeys
  • Bzebras
  • Cgiraffes
  • Dlions
  • Etigers

Q9:

A father collected data to determine a relationship between studying hours and break hours for his 3 sons on a single day. His results were as follows:

Jacob: (4,2)

Michael: (5,3)

Noah: (7,4)

Which of the following graphs best describes the given data?

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D
  • E

Q10:

A regular, eight-pointed star has been drawn in a coordinate plane with seven of its vertices at (−1,1),(0,3),(1,1),(3,0),(1,−1),(0,−3), and (−1,−1). Find the coordinates of the remaining point.

  • A ( 0 , − 1 )

  • D ( − 3 , 0 )
  • E ( 3 , 3 )

Q11:

Jacob is plotting his exercise performance over 4 weeks on a coordinate grid. Each ordered pair represents the number of kilometers he swims and the number of kilometers he runs every week. His results were as follows:

week 1: (1,4),

week 2: (2,3),

week 3: (1,5),

week 4: (3,4).

Which of the following graphs accurately describes Jacob’s performance?

  • A
