"90 degree counterclockwise rotation rule" is the stuff required to change each vertex of the given figure in order to rotate it 90 degree counter clockwise.

When we rotate a figure of 90 degrees counterclockwise, 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 counterclockwise rotation rule", let us look at some practice problems.

**Problem 1 : **

Let F (-4, -2), G (-2, -2) and H (-3, 1) be the three vertices of a triangle. If this triangle is rotated 90° counterclockwise, find the vertices of the rotated figure and graph.

**Solution : **

**Step 1 :**

Here triangle is rotated 90° counterclockwise. 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)**

F ( -4 , -2 ) ------------ F' ( 2 , -4 )

G ( -2 , -2 ) ------------ G' ( 2 , -2 )

**Step 4 :**

Vertices of the rotated figure are

** F' (2, -4) , G' (2, -2) and H' (-1, -3) **
