The plane is divided into four regions and the regions are classified as,
Now we will understand these quadrants in detail. The quadrant is always considered in the anti-clockwise direction (moves in the opposite side of the clockwise direction).
In the first quadrant, we have a positive x-axis and positive y-axis. x and y both values are positive in this quadrant. In this quadrant, the angle measure starts from 0 degrees to 90 degrees. It is in the shape of a right angle.
In the second quadrant, we have a negative x-axis and the positive y-axis. In this quadrant, x value will be negative and y value will be positive. In this quadrant, the angle measures from 90 degrees to 180 degrees.
In the third quadrant, we have a negative x-axis and a negative y-axis. Both x and y values in this quadrant are negative. The angle measures from 180 degrees to 270 degrees in this quadrant.
In this quadrant, we have a positive x-axis and a negative y-axis. The x value is positive and the value is negative in this quadrant. The angle measures from 270 degrees to 360 degrees.

Y - Coordinate
The trigonometric values of the quadrant are given as follows.
The sine function according to the sine graph will have positive values in the first quadrant and the second quadrant and will have negative values in the third quadrant and the fourth quadrant. Cosec function will have similar values to the sine function.
The cosine function according to the cosine graph will have positive values in the first quadrant and the fourth quadrant will have negative values in the second quadrant and the third quadrant. The Sec function will have similar values to the cosine function.
The tangent function according to the tan graph will have positive values in the first quadrant and the third quadrant will have negative values in the second quadrant and the fourth quadrant. The cot function will have similar values to the tan function.
Add Sugar To Coffee where A= All, S = Sin/cosec T = tan/cot, C= cos/sec thus all are positive in 1st quadrant only sin/cosec is positive in 2nd quadrant, tan/cot is only positive in 3rd quadrant and cos/sec is only positive in 4th quadrant.
1.Elaborate on Plotting of Points in the Quadrants of the Graph.
Answer: There are some important steps that are useful in plotting the graph. They are given below,
The first step is we need to draw the x-axis and the y-axis.
The x-axis should be horizontal and the y-axis should be vertical.
Consider the point of intersection (where both axes met) as the origin (0,0).
The value on the origin is (0,0) because here the x-axis value is 0 and the y-axis value is also 0.
To find the position value on the x-axis we first need to find the location on the y-axis.
We will plot this point on the graph.
Then we get one point on the graph of (3,5) and the other point we have is (0,0).
The next step is to join these points by drawing a line.
By following these steps, the graph is plotted on the x-axis and the y-axis.
