## What is coordinate example?

A set of values that show an exact position. On graphs it is usually a pair of numbers: the first number shows the distance along, and the second number shows the distance up or down. Example: the point (12,5) is 12 units along, and 5 units up.

**What is the coordinate plane?**

A coordinate plane is a two-dimensional plane formed by the intersection of a vertical line called the y-axis and a horizontal line called the x-axis. These are perpendicular lines that intersect each other at zero, and this point is called the origin….Coordinate Plane.

### What is an example of translation in math?

A Translation is a transformation that moves every Point in a figure the same distance in the same direction. For example, this transformation moves the parallelogram to the right 5 units and up 3 units. It is written ( x , y ) → ( x + 5 , y + 3 ) .

**What are the real life example of coordinate geometry?**

Coordinate geometry is used to manage and regulate air traffic. The coordinates of the flight are used to describe the aircraft’s current location. Even if an aircraft moves a tiny distance (up, down, forward, or backward), the system updates the coordinates of flight for every small change in its position.

#### How do you translate a coordinate plane?

In the coordinate plane we can draw the translation if we know the direction and how far the figure should be moved. To translate the point P(x,y) , a units right and b units up, use P'(x+a,y+b) .

**When you turn a shape in the coordinate plane it is called a?**

A transformation is the movement of a geometric figure on the coordinate plane. A rotation is a type of transformation which is a turn. A figure can be turned clockwise or counterclockwise on the coordinate plane. In both transformations the size and shape of the figure stays exactly the same.

## What is an example of a translation in real life?

A brick wall The pattern of the bricks is a good example of translation. The patterns are achieved by displacement of bricks horizontally and vertically without changing the size, shape or orientation of the bricks.

**How is the coordinate plane used in real life?**

The latitude and longitude lines on maps of the Earth are an important example of spherical coordinates in real life. With the r-coordinate fixed at the radius of the Earth, the two-dimensional latitude and longitude plane is used to specify the location of different places on the surface of the Earth.

### How do you explain coordinate geometry with examples?

The abscissa and ordinate is used to represent the position of a point on a graph. The horizontal value or the X axis value is the abscissa while the vertical value i.e. the Y axis value is the ordinate. For example, in an ordered pair (2, 3), 2 is abscissa and 3 is ordinate.

**What are coordinate planes used for in real life?**

#### What does it mean to rotate an object on a coordinate plane?

A rotation occurs when an image turns around a center of rotation with every point of the rotated image remaining the same distance from the center of rotation. For now, you will specifically be looking at 90°, 180°, and 270° rotations around the origin.

**What’s a real world example of a rotation?**

Clock Ticking. The minute, hour, and second hand of a clock rotate in a circular direction, keeping the pinpoint as the centre or the axis of rotation. Hence, the hands of a clock are said to be exhibiting rotatory motion.

## What is a real life example of a rotation?

In real-life, we know the earth rotates on its own axis, which is an example of rotation. A group of people holding their hands and forming a circle and walking in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction. A globe of map rotating on its axis.

**What is a coordinate plane?**

A coordinate plane is a two-dimensional surface formed by two number lines. It is formed when a horizontal line called the X-axis and a vertical line called the Y-axis intersect at a point called the origin. The numbers on a coordinate grid are used to locate points. A coordinate plane can be used to graph points, lines, and much more.

### What are co-coordinates?

Coordinates are a set of two values that locate a specific point on a coordinate plane grid, better known as a coordinate plane. A point in a coordinate plane is named by its ordered pair of the form (x, y), which is written in parentheses, corresponding to the X-coordinate and the Y-coordinate.

**What is the horizontal number line on a coordinate plane called?**

The horizontal number line on a coordinate plane is known as the x-axis. The vertical number line on a coordinate plane is known as the y-axis. A point on a coordinate plane is named by its x-coordinate followed by its y-coordinate in parentheses. To unlock this lesson you must be a Study.com Member.

#### What is the x-axis of a coordinate plane?

A coordinate plane consists of two number lines that intersect, one running horizontally, the other running vertically. The horizontal number line on a coordinate plane is known as the x-axis.
