Ordered Pair

Q:  What is the “ordered pair”?

A:  An “ordered pair” is a collection of 2 coordinates.  Usually, we see an ordered pair listed as (x, y).  The pair is considered to be “ordered” because we can uniquely distinguish the first coordinate from the second coordinate.  Order matters.

This is what an ordered pair is to me 🙂
