What is the rule for rotating 90 degrees clockwise about the origin?

When you rotate 90 degrees clockwise what is XY?

Answer: To rotate the figure 90 degrees clockwise about a point, every point(x,y) will rotate to (y, -x). Let’s understand the rotation of 90 degrees clockwise about a point visually. So, each point has to be rotated and new coordinates have to be found. Then we can join the points and find the new positioned figure.

Is clockwise left or right?

Clockwise involves a turn to the right, following the direction of the hands of a clock. It is a negative rotation direction. Anticlockwise involves a turn to the left, against the direction of a clock’s hands.

Is clockwise rotation positive or negative?

Counterclockwise is the positive rotation direction and clockwise is the negative direction. For example, a torque that rotates an object counterclockwise is a positive torque (see figure 6 below).
