## How many numbers in an address - Visualizing Algebra

• 0:00 - 0:04
&gt;&gt; It looks like two numbers convey a lot of information. In algebra we use a
• 0:04 - 0:09
similar system to identify locations. This is system is called the coordinate
• 0:09 - 0:13
plane or the Cartesian plane. The system uses two lines known as the x axis and
• 0:13 - 0:18
the y axis. The x axis is the horizontal line and the y axis is the vertical
• 0:18 - 0:23
line that runs through plane. By drawing this graph we can create an infinite
• 0:23 - 0:27
world of numbers and intersections. Where the x axis and y axis intersect is
• 0:27 - 0:32
called the origin, the center. Just like we labelled streets and avenues on our
• 0:32 - 0:37
maps, we can label our axes with numbers, 0, 1, 2, and so on. We can do this in
• 0:37 - 0:42
the horizontal direction and in the vertical direction. To indicate a point on
• 0:42 - 0:46
this Cartesian system, how many numbers would we need to specify? This can be
• 0:46 - 0:50
tricky, so think back to our map. How many numbers would we need to specify a
• 0:50 - 0:54
point like this? I'm not asking you for the location, I'm asking you for the
• 0:54 - 0:56
