Hey coder! Today in this tutorial we will do a simple basic coding in Python programming to determine that a particular point belongs to which quadrant in the space.
We all know there are in total 4 coordinates in the 2D space as shown in the image below.
Here the condition for each quadrant is as follows:
- Quadrant 1: x is negative and y is positive
- Quadrant 2: Both x and y are positive
- Quadrant 3: Both x and y are negative
- Quadrant 4: x is positive and y is negative
Now let’s look at the code implementation of quadrant determination in which we simply need to check the value of the x and y value of a point in the space.
Finding the Quardrant Based on X,Y Position
x = int(input()) y = int(input()) print("(",x,",",y,")",end="") if(x<0 and y<0): print(" belongs to 3rd Quadrant.") elif(x<0 and y>0): print(" belongs to 1st Quadrant.") elif(x>0 and y>0): print(" belongs to 2nd Quadrant.") else: print(" belongs to 4th Quadrant.")
Some sample outputs of the code are displayed below. Have a look and cross-check the outputs if you want.
( 2 , -3 ) belongs to 4th Quadrant.
( 2 , 4 ) belongs to 2nd Quadrant.
I hope the logic of the quadrants and allocation of quadrants to points in space. Thank you for reading the tutorial!
Happy Learning! 😇
