# What Are The 4 Quadrants?

## What are the 4 quadrants on a coordinate plane?

The axes of a two-dimensional Cartesian system divide the plane into four infinite regions, called quadrants, each bounded by two half-axes. These are often numbered from 1st to 4th and denoted by Roman numerals: I (where the signs of the (x; y) coordinates are I (+; +), II (−; +), III (−; −), and IV (+; −).

## Is Quadrant 4 positive or negative?

In Quadrant I, both the x– and y-coordinates are positive; in Quadrant II, the x-coordinate is negative, but the y-coordinate is positive; in Quadrant III both are negative; and in Quadrant IV, x is positive but y is negative.

It means: In the first quadrant (I), all ratios are positive. In the second quadrant (II), sine (and cosec) are positive. In the third quadrant (III), tan (and cotan) are positive. In the fourth quadrant (IV), cos (and sec) are positive.

## Which quadrants are which in a graph?

Here are the graph quadrants and their values: Quadrant I: The first quadrant is in the upper right-hand corner of the plane. Both x and y have positive values in this quadrant. Quadrant II: The second quadrant is in the upper left-hand corner of the plane.

## What are the 4 quadrants of a graph?

The intersecting x- and y-axes divide the coordinate plane into four sections. These four sections are called quadrants. Quadrants are named using the Roman numerals I, II, III, and IV beginning with the top right quadrant and moving counter clockwise.
