This shows a set of axes with the scales marked from 0 to 3 on the horizontal axis and from 0 to 3 on the vertical axis. The horizontal axis is labelled with an x at the right hand arrowhead. The vertical axis is labelled with a y above the arrowhead. Two small black circles are labelled P(3, 2) and Q. P is opposite the 3 on the horizontal (or x-axis) and opposite 2 on the vertical (or y-axis). Dotted lines indicate that P is three units across and 2 units up. Q is opposite the 1 on the x-axis and opposite 3 on the y-axis.
