# In which quadrant or on which axis do each of the points (-2, 4), (3, -1), (-1, 0), (1, 2) and (-3, -5) lie? Verify your answer by locating them on the Cartesian plane.

**Solution:**

To determine the quadrant or axis of the points (-2, 4), (3, -1), (-1, 0), (1, 2) and (-3, -5), we will plot the points.

Plot the points (-2, 4), (3, -1), (-1, 0), (1, 2) and (-3, -5) on the graph, as shown below.

From the figure above, we can conclude that

- Point (-2, 4) lies in the 2
^{nd}quadrant. - Point (3, -1) lies in the 4
^{th}quadrant. - Point (-1, 0) lies on the negative x-axis.
- Point (1, 2) lies in the 1
^{st}quadrant. - Point (-3, -5) lies in the 3
^{rd}quadrant.
