"90 degree clockwise rotation about the origin" is the stuff which is required to the students who study math in the grade level 6.

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.

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) **
