For the 5 points in SVG start, does it correspond to x, y coordination ?

Where does 0,0 refer ? Does it refer based on the width and height of the svg ?  Thx


<svg width="300" height="200">
  <polygon points="100,10 40,198 190,78 10,78 160,198"
  style="fill:lime;stroke:purple;stroke-width:5;fill-rule:evenodd;" />
</svg>

This article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalable_Vector_Graphics shows 0,0 to be the upper left corner of the SVG object.

Consider this progressive drawing of the star
<svg width="300" height="200" style="border: 1px solid black">
  <polygon points="0,0,100,10"
  style="fill:lime;stroke:purple;stroke-width:5;fill-rule:evenodd;" />
</svg> 
<svg width="300" height="200" style="border: 1px solid black">
  <polygon points="100,10 40,198"
  style="fill:lime;stroke:purple;stroke-width:5;fill-rule:evenodd;" />
</svg> 
<svg width="300" height="200" style="border: 1px solid black">
  <polygon points="100,10 40,198 190,78"
  style="fill:lime;stroke:purple;stroke-width:5;fill-rule:evenodd;" />
</svg> 
<svg width="300" height="200" style="border: 1px solid black">
  <polygon points="100,10 40,198 190,78 10,78"
  style="fill:lime;stroke:purple;stroke-width:5;fill-rule:evenodd;" />
</svg> 
<svg width="300" height="200" style="border: 1px solid black">
  <polygon points="100,10 40,198 190,78 10,78 160,198"
