Plotting a point.
So, on the graph the point was at -1 on the x-axis
so i put down my answer as (-1,0)
which was incorrect, the correct answer is (0,-1)
I don't really understand it, can somebody plz tell me why im wrong

appreciated, eve

On the coordinate plane, the point is at -1 on the x-axis so i wrote down my answer as (-1,0)
but it was incorrect, the correct answer is (0,-1)
do you were i went wrong?

(0, -1) is the point on the y axis at -1.

Is (0, -1) the answer of the book? If so, I believe it's a typing error.

But what is the exact question?

The book told to go give the coordinate of each point.

Yes, I think the book made a mistake when printing the answers. The one of point F (is that it? It's blurry) is indeed (-1, 0) and not (0, -1).

EDIT: Okay, I saw the other pictures and it's really point F.

By the way, if you want to have a good picture of something on your screen, you can do the following:
1. Press PrintScreen on your keyboard.
2. Open Paint.
3. Press Edit > Paste (or Ctrl + V)
4. Cut and delete the parts you don't want. (optional)
5. Save as image.
