# Math Definitions - Letter Q

### Chapters

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.
