**Question**

Where is the point (-4,

^{1}/

_{2}) located in the coordinate plane?

**Answer**

The coordinates of a point is expressed in the form of (

*x*,

*y*), where

*x* is the x-coordinate and

*y* is the y-coordinate of the point.

Now, we are given (-4,

^{1}/

_{2}). Since

^{1}/

_{2} is the same as 0.5, the coordinates of the point is (-4, 0.5). The picture below shows the location of the point on the plane:
