What Are Coordinate Graphs? Graphs are an exciting way of visualizing a relationship. Coordinate graphs are no different to this phenomenon. It is a visual way of showing the relationship between two numbers – a relationship that specifies the link between two variables. The relationship is shown on a coordinate grid that consists of two perpendicular lines, or axes with numbers mentioned on both the axes according to a scale. One axis is the horizontal x-axis and the other is a vertical y-axis, and the point where these two axes meet is called the origin. The axes divide the whole plane into four distinct quadrants, with the right side's quadrant I and IV locating positive and negative y-axis and the left side quadrants II and III locating the positive and negative x-axis. The numbers on the coordinate graph locate the points and each point (a number on x-axis and a number on y-axis) becomes an ordered pair of numbers. The pairs are written in parentheses like this (2,5). It is important to remember the order of writing the point in a coordinate graph. The x-coordinate always comes first, and the y-coordinate is always second.
