## Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts & Applications (6th Edition)

RECALL: In the point $(x ,y)$: $x$ = directed distance of the point from the y-axis (positive when the point is to the right of the y-axis, negative when to the left) $y$ = directed distance of the point from the x-axis (positive when the point is above the x-axis, negative when below) Use the definitions above to plot the point. $x=-4$ so the point is 4 units to the left of the y-axis. $y=0$ so the point is 0 units above the x-axis (it must be on the x-axis itself). (refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the plot)
