Every point has a pair of values, written like $(x,y)$, where the $x$ value represents the distance to the left or right of the origin on the horizontal axis and the $y$ value represents the distance below or above the origin on the vertical axis.</p>
<p><strong><span style="color:#8e44ad;">Examples</span></strong></p>
<p>If we have the point $(4, 2)$, that means we would move four points to the <span style="color:#27ae60;">RIGHT </span>from the origin in the horizontal direction and two points <span style="color:#27ae60;">UP</span> in the vertical direction.</p>
<p>If we have the point $(-3, 0)$, we would move three points to the <span style="color:#e74c3c;">LEFT </span>from the origin in the horizontal direction and not move at all in the vertical direction. Thus, this point would be positioned directly on the $x$-axis.</p>
