Cartesian Plane Definition
A Cartesian plane is a graph with one x-axis and one y-axis. These two axes are perpendicular to each other. The origin (O) is in the exact center of the graph. Numbers to the right of the zero on the x-axis are positive; numbers to the left of zero are negative. For the y-axis, numbers below zero are negative and numbers above are positive.
