However, if (Bn, Cn) is to the ight of the vertex, then, /Bn/[less than]/C and Bn+Cn/2 [great than]0, so the next point is in the fourth quadrant. Further, when Bn and Cn are very close in absolute value (i.e., (Bn, Cn) is close to the vertex), their average is very close to zero, and the next point plots close to the vertical axis far from the origin.
