(-42,17) is in the second quadrant

Work Step by Step

We are given that the location of the ordered pair is (-42,17). Therefore, the point has a negative x-coordinate and a positive y-coordinate, which corresponds to the second quadrant. Because $|-42|\gt|17|$, we know that the point is farther away from the y-axis than it is from the x-axis.
