Work Step by Step

RECALL: The point (x, y) has: x = directed distance of the point from the y-axis (positive when to the right of the y-axis, negative when to the left) y = directed distance of the point from the x-axis (positive when above the x-axis, negative when below) Thus, the given point is 0 units from the y-axis (or on the y-axis itself) 4 units above the x-axis Therefore, the point that matches the given coordinates is point E.
