# Definition of Quadrant (graph)

The \(x\) and \(y\)-axes divide the plane up into four equal regions called **quadrants**.

We usually label them using the Roman Numerals, I,II,III and IV:

- In quadrant I, both \(x\) and \(y\) are positive.
- In quadrant II, \(x\) is negative and \(y\) is positive.
- In quadrant III, both \(x\) and \(y\) are negative.
- In quadrant IV, \(x\) is positive and \(y\) is negative.
