      The axis are to plot points. You can't plot without an "address", and since coordinate planes are theoretically infinite, there needs to be something to define where a point is. The axis is kind of like a street in a city then the points are the different houses, if that analogy makes sense.

    quadrants are numbered in counterclockwise order starting at the upper right quadrant, how would octants be numbered? starting where and what order?

      You name the axis that it is on instead of the quadrant. (0,0) is on the origin

      The point (0,0) doesn't lie in a specific quadrant. This is because it's essentially where the two axes (x and y) meet; the boundary between all 4 quadrants. It's known as the origin, and not really defined as belonging to any of the quadrants on a coordinate plane.

    Could someone help me? I have been stuck on graphing for awhile and my teacher wants me to redo my test because of it. Does anyone know some ways I got possibly remember?

      Under the assumption that your problem is remembering the quadrant locations, a simple way you can remember the quadrants is by imagining how you write a "c". Specifically, the order of all the quadrants goes as top right, top left, bottom left, bottom right. That's also the way you write a "c".

      Points that lie directly on the x and y axis aren't considered to be in a quadrant. In this case, you would just say that the point (0, 1) lies on the y-axis

    Just to ask, is it a necessity to say "comma" in between numbers? because I think it's just [7,7] is read "7 by 7."
