# The points (-5, 2) and (2, -5) lie in the

a. same quadrant

b. II and III quadrants, respectively

c. II and IV quadrants, respectively

d. IV and II quadrants, respectively

**Solution:**

The points given are (-5, 2) and (2, -5)

We know that

(-5, 2) is of the form (-x, y)

It lies in the II quadrant

(2, -5) is of the form (x, -y)

It lies in the IV quadrant

Therefore, the points lie in the II and IV quadrants, respectively.

✦ **Try This: **The points (-3, 5) and (5, -3) lie in the a. same quadrant, b. II and III quadrants, respectively, c. II and IV quadrants, respectively, d. IV and II quadrants, respectively
