    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

    Unless I misread something, the answer should be (-1,0).

    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.

    Then you upload and post the link.
