# What does it mean to rotate about the origin?

## What does it mean to rotate about the origin?

Rotation about the Origin is a transformation that rotates or turns a figure (e.g., a triangle) about the origin point (x,y)u2192(0,0). ( x , y ) u2192 ( 0 , 0 ) . Angle of Rotation: The number of degrees that a figure is turned or rotated about the origin.

## Is 90 degrees about the origin clockwise or counterclockwise?

Example 01: 90 Degrees Clockwise About the Origin Since the rotation is 90 degrees, you will rotating the point in a clockwise direction.

## How do you rotate the origin?

The rule for a rotation by 90xb0 about the origin is (x,y)u2192(u2212y,x) .

## What does it mean to rotate 90 degrees about the origin?

When we rotate a figure of 180 degrees about the origin either in the clockwise or counterclockwise direction, each point of the given figure has to be changed from (x, y) to (-x, -y) and graph the rotated figure.

## Is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise about the origin?

90 Degree Rotation When rotating a point 90 degrees counterclockwise about the origin our point A(x,y) becomes A'(-y,x). In other words, switch x and y and make y negative.

## What does 90 degrees about the origin mean?

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

## How do you rotate 90 degrees about the origin?

Rotation by 90xb0 about the origin: The rule for a rotation by 90xb0 about the origin is (x,y)u2192(u2212y,x) .

## What does it mean rotation about the origin?

Rotation by 90xb0 about the origin: The rule for a rotation by 90xb0 about the origin is (x,y)u2192(u2212y,x) .

## What does it mean to rotate 90 degrees counterclockwise about the origin?

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

## What is a 90 degree counterclockwise rotation?

90xb0 counterclockwise rotation: (x,y) becomes (-y,x) 180xb0 clockwise and counterclockwise rotation: (x,y) becomes (-x,-y) 270xb0 clockwise rotation: (x,y) becomes (-y,x)

## Is rotating about the origin clockwise or counterclockwise?

Direction of Rotation: Counterclockwise or clockwise direction. Positive rotations are counterclockwise.Negative rotations are clockwise. For example, to rotate the point (2, 5) counterclockwise about the origin by 90 degrees, we use the rule: (x,y)u2192(u2212y,x) ( x , y ) u2192 ( u2212 y , x ) .

## What does turning 90 degrees mean?

Rotation about the Origin is a transformation that rotates or turns a figure (e.g., a triangle) about the origin point (x,y)u2192(0,0). ( x , y ) u2192 ( 0 , 0 ) . Angle of Rotation: The number of degrees that a figure is turned or rotated about the origin.
