# Taking 0.5 cm as 1 unit, plot the following points on the graph paper : A (1, 3), B (-3, -1), C (1, -4), D (-2, 3), E (0, -8), F (1, 0)

**Solution:**

Given, the points are A (1, 3), B (- 3, - 1), C (1, - 4), D (- 2, 3), E (0, - 8), F (1, 0)

Given, scale 0.5 cm = 1 unit.

We have to plot the given points on the graph paper.

Considering the point A(1, 3)

The x-coordinate is positive and the y-coordinate is positive

The point A lies in the first quadrant.

Considering the point B(-3, -1)

The x-coordinate is negative and the y-coordinate is negative

The point B lies in the third quadrant

Considering the point C(1, -4)

The x-coordinate is positive and the y-coordinate is negative

The point C lies in the fourth quadrant

Considering the point D(-2, 3)

The x-coordinate is negative and the y-coordinate is positive

The point D lies in the second quadrant

Considering the point E(0, -8)

The x-coordinate is 0 and the y-coordinate is negative

The point E lies on the negative y-axis

Considering the point F(1, 0)

The x-coordinate is positive and the y-coordinate is 0

The point F lies on the x-axis

## Taking 0.5 cm as 1 unit, plot the following points on the graph paper : A (1, 3), B (-3, -1), C (1, -4), D (-2, 3), E (0, -8), F (1, 0)

**Summary:**

Abscissa or the x-coordinate of a point is its distance from the y-axis and the ordinate or the y-coordinate is its distance from the x-axis. The graph of the points A (1, 3), B (- 3, - 1), C (1, - 4), D (- 2, 3), E (0, - 8), F (1, 0) with scale 0.5 cm as 1 unit is mentioned above
