Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Pearson Addison-Wesley Introduction to Graphing The Rectangular Coordinate System Scatterplots and Line Graphs 3.1

Slide 3 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Pearson Addison-Wesley The Rectangular Coordinate System One common way to graph data is to use the rectangular coordinate system, or xy-plane. In the xy-plane the horizontal axis is the x-axis, and the vertical axis is the y-axis. The axes intersect at the origin. The axes divide the xy-plane into four regions called quadrants, which are numbered I, II, III, and IV counterclockwise.

Slide 4 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Pearson Addison-Wesley EXAMPLE Plotting points Plot the following ordered pairs on the same xy-plane. State the quadrant in which each point is located, if possible. a. (4, 3) b. ( 3, 4)c. ( 1, 0) Solution a. (4, 3) Move 4 units to the right of the origin and 3 units up. b. ( 3, 4) Move 3 units to the left of the origin and 4 units down. c. ( 1, 0) Move 1 unit to the left of the origin. Quadrant I Quadrant III Not in any quadrant

Slide 5 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Pearson Addison-Wesley EXAMPLE Reading a graph Frozen pizza makers have improved their pizzas to taste more like homemade. Use the graph to estimate frozen pizza sales in 1994 and 2000. Solution a. To estimate sales in 1994, locate 1994 on the x-axis. Then move upward to the data point and approximate its y- coordinate. b. To estimate sales in 2000, locate 2000 on the x-axis. Then move upward to the data point and approximate its y- coordinate. a. about \$2.1 billion in sales b. about \$3.0 billion in sales

If distinct points are plotted in the xy-plane, then the resulting graph is called a scatterplot. Slide 6 Copyright © 2009 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Pearson Addison-Wesley Scatterplots and Line Graphs
