How to Plot Points on a Coordinate Plane

            To plot points on a coordinate plane one needs to have a coordinate plane. After the coordinate plane is laid down one needs to have two coordinates (ordered pair). One coordinate is the x coordinate and it tells how many spaces a point is moved horizontally. The second coordinate is the y coordinate and it tells how many spaces the point is moved vertically. In an ordered pair the x coordinate goes first and the y coordinate goes second. When charting the point one counts the number of spaces horizontally first and the number of space vertically second. This is how to chart points on a coordinate plane.
