This shows a set of axes drawn on 2 cm graph paper. This means that the graph paper has a 2 cm square grid marked by thick grey lines and each 2 cm square is then divided into 100 2 mm squares, marked by thin grey lines. 2 cm represents 1 unit on both axes and each 2 cm length (vertically or horizontally) is divided into ten small intervals by the 2 mm grid. Each 2 mm interval represents 0.1 on both the horizontal and vertical axes. The horizontal scale is marked from minus 2 to 2 and the vertical scale is marked from 0 to 2. The axes intersect at the origin. Three points A, B, and C are marked. A is opposite 1.3 on the x-axis and opposite 0.8 on the y-axis. B is opposite minus 0.3 on the x-axis and opposite 1.4 on the y-axis. C is opposite minus1.5 on the x-axis and opposite 0.9 on the y-axis.
