    Hi andyboy179,



    Coordinates are read as (x, y) pairs. It looks to me like the first corner from the origin is 3 units right and 1 unit down or (3, -1). The adjacent corner looks like (6, -1). Maybe the next one down is (6, -2). The lower vertex looks to be (4.5, -4), but I can't be sure.

    Read the x-coordinate first, then the y-coordinate. You don't have any interval markings on the axes, so it's difficult to give you accurate coordinates.

    To learn how to plot points and read coordinates from plotted points, try here. (Your picture is too small for me to see. Sorry.)
