Use the graph in the Example.

Question 11.

Ted lives 20 miles south and 20 miles west of the city represented on the graph in Example 3. His brother Ned lives 50 miles north of Ted’s house. Give the coordinates of each brother’s house.

Answer:

Ted lives 20 miles south and 20 miles west of the city represented on the graph, then the point of Teds location is given by (-20, -20). Note that the negative signs are chosen because of the given directions. If Ned’s house is 50 miles north of Ted, then add 50 to the y-coordinate of Teds location to determine Ned’s location, therefore (-20, -20 + 50) = (-20, 30).

Vocabulary Describe how an ordered pair represents a point on a coordinate plane. Include the terms x-coordinate, y-coordinate, and origin in your answer.

Answer:

The ordered pair represented by (x, y) = (a, b) means that the ordered pair is a units towards the right of the origin along the positive x-axis. If it is -a then the negative sign implies the left side of the origin on the negative x-axis. It also means that the ordered pair is b units above the origin along the positive y-axis. If it is -b then the negative sign implies along the negative y-axis.

Question 16.

**Explain the Error** Janine tells her friend that ordered pairs that have an x-coordinate of 0 lie on the x-axis. She uses the origin as an example. Describe Janine’s error. Use a counterexample to explain why Janine’s statement is false.

Answer:

A point lies on the x-axis when its y-coordinate is equal to 0, like the point (5, 0). The origin or (0, 0) represents the point where both x and y are 0. Another example is that of the point (0, 9). Its x-coordinate is equal to 0 but it does not lie on the x-axis but on the y-axis

**Texas Go Math Grade 6 Lesson 14.1 H.O.T. Focus On Higher Order Thinking Answer Key**

Question 17.

**Critical Thinking** Choose scales for the coordinate plane shown so that you can graph the points J(2, 40), K(3, 10), L(3, -40), M(-4, 50), and N(-5, -50). Explain why you chose the scale for each axis.

Answer:

Study the x-coordinates of the given points. The most negative one is -5 and the largest is 3, so 1 grid is equal to 1 unit on the x-axis.

Study the y-coordinates of the given points. The most negative one is -50 and the largest is 50, so 1 grid is equal to 10 units on the y-axis.

Question 18.

**Communicate Mathematical Ideas** Edgar wants to plot the ordered pair (1.8, -1.2) on a coordinate plane. On each axis, one grid square equals 0.1. Starting at the origin, how can Edgar find (1.8, -1.2)?

Answer:

1.8

Divide the coordinate by the scale to determine the number of grids to be moved across. Here \(\frac{1.8}{0.1}\) = 18 implies that from the origin, he will have to move 18 grids to the right and then \(\frac{1.2}{0.1}\) = 12 grids perpendicularly downwards to reach the point (1.8, -1.2).

Question 19.

**Represent Real-World Problems** Zach graphs some ordered pairs in the coordinate plane. The x-values of the ordered pairs represent the number of hours since noon, and the y-values represent the temperature at that time.

a. In which quadrants could Zach graph points? Explain your thinking.

Answer:

Zach’s points will lie either in the first quadrant if both the quantities are positive or in the fourth quadrant, if the temperature noted is negative.

b. In what part of the world and at what time of year might Zach collect data so that the points he plots are in Quadrant IV?

Answer:

He should note down these readings somewhere in Alaska in December to have all his points in the fourth quadrant.
