How to Identify a Location on a Grid?
Learning the concept of grids is essential when you are trying to grasp the core understanding of graphs. Let us first discuss what actually is a grid? A grid system assists in identifying the location of points traveled from the origin. Let us consider an example:
Now, in this scenario, we have to find the distance he took on the x-axis and on the y-axis independently. Let us consider the x-axis first. You can see that it’s above 7, so that means that the star took 7 steps along the x-axis. Now, how many steps did it take towards the y-axis? You can see that the star is in front of 4, so it took 4 steps above.
