The point (5$\frac{1}{2}$,-4) is in the fourth quadrant
We plot the point (5$\frac{1}{2}$,-4) by starting at the origin. Next, we move 5$\frac{1}{2}$ positive units along the x-axis. Next, we move 4 negative units along the y-axis. This point is the ordered pair (5$\frac{1}{2}$,-4), which is in quadrant IV.
