The Cartesian plane is composed of two perpendicular axes. Their intersection defines the origin of the plane. Each axis is graduated starting from the origin.
These axes divide the cartesian plane into four quadrants.
A point is located in the Cartesian plane by its abscissa "x" and its ordinate "y". Together in this order, (x,y) constitutes the coordinates of the point.
