Quadrant  Definition with Examples
What is Quadrant?
Take a sheet of paper and draw the horizontal axis (xaxis) and the vertical axis (yaxis). These two axes divide the paper into 4 parts. Each part is called a quadrant.
The meeting point of the two axes is called the origin.
By convention, quadrants are named in an anticlockwise direction.
Each point is represented by its xcoordinate followed by its ycoordinate.
It is written as (x, y)
So, for a point (6, 3), its xcoordinate is 6 and ycoordinate is 3.
In the first quadrant, both x and y take positive values. In the second quadrant, x is negative and y is positive. In the third quadrant, x and y are negative, and in the fourth quadrant, x is positive and y is negative.

(5, 4)  l 
(5, 4)  ll 
(5, 4)  lll 
(5, 4)  lV 
There are also points which do not lie on any of the four quadrants.
For example: (1, 0), (1, 0), (0, 2) and (0, 5) do not lie on any of the four quadrants. They lie on the xaxis or yaxis.
(1, 0) and (1, 0) lie on the xaxis.
(0, 2) and (0, 5) lie on the yaxis.
