Plotting a point in the coordinate plane refers to locating and marking the point on the coordinate plane using its x-coordinate and y-coordinate.

**Example:**

Plot (8, 6) on the coordinate plane.

First, locate 8 on the x-axis. Start at the center (0,0) and move eight units to the right. You are now at (8,0)

Then, locate 6 on the y-axis. Start at (8, 0) and move 6 units up. You are now at (8,6)

(8,6) is shown in the figure below

Note how we marked the location of (8,6) with a blue dot
