# Graphing patterns on coordinate plane

Learn about understanding numerical patterns. Explore how to generate a second pattern from a given one by applying a rule, in this case, multiplying by 3 and adding 1. Then, graph the pairs of corresponding terms from both patterns on a coordinate plane. Created by Sal Khan.

• how does he get the answer I don't understand!
• Because it almost like a cooridante plane. A is the x axis and B is the b axis think of it that way
• What is the use or the importance of Coordinate Plane?
• 1. Describing position.
2. Location of Air Transport:
An air traffic controller must know the location of every aircraft in the sky within certain geographic boundaries.
3. Map Projections.
4. Latitude and longitude:
A geographic coordinate system is used to assign geographic locations to objects.
5. Military service:
For each target there are coordinates to determine the precise position of them.
6. Economy:
for analysing and managing.
• this doesn't even help with what I need it to help me with
(┬┬﹏┬┬)
• I think I get the KHANcept!
• VERY hilarious
• how do you write the notes for home work
• So where is the origin again?

• Hi exclusive.Zar-ruh! The origin is at (0,0). The origin is the beginning of the "x axis" and the "y axis". You can also think of it as being in between the negatives and positives of both axes. Once you understand coordinate planes, it is truly a very simple concept. Hope this helps. Have a great day! 😄
• At Sal started to say things over and over again. IS THAT BAD?

• think he was trying to make things clear for everyone I mean like you caught that so it was clear maybe he thought the person was kinda distracted at that point like my SISTER is distracting me with dolls (just an example)
