90 degree clockwise rotation about the origin - Rule

When we rotate a figure of 90 degrees clockwise about the orign, each point of the given figure has to be changed from (x,y) to (y,-x) and graph the rotated figure.  

90 degree clockwise rotation about the origin  - Practice problems 

To have better understanding on "90 degree clockwise rotation about the origin", let us look at some practice problems. 

Problem 1 : 

Let K (-4, -4), L (0, -4), M (0, -2) and N(-4, -2) be the vertices of a rectangle. If this rectangle is rotated 90° clockwise, find the vertices of the rotated figure and graph.

Solution : 

Step 1 :

Here triangle is rotated 90° clockwise. So the rule that we have to apply here is (x , y) -------> (y , -x)

Step 2 :

Based on the rule given in step 1, we have to find the vertices of the rotated figure

Step 3 :

(x , y) ----------> (y , -x)

K ( -4 , -4 ) ------------ K' ( -4 , 4 )

L ( 0 , -4 ) ------------ L' ( -4 , 0 )

M ( 0 , -2 ) ------------ M' ( -2 , 0 )

N ( -4 , -2 ) ------------ N' ( -2 , 4 )

Step 4 :

Vertices of the rotated figure are                      

                       K' (-4, 4) , L' (-4, 0), M' (-2, 0) and N' (-2, 4)
